Full moon is sign 
of romance, mischief 

By Leo Murray 
Staff Writer 

To lovers, a full moon is one of the main 
ingredients for a night of romance. To law en- 
forcement officials, however, a full moon is the 
main ingredient for a busy night. 

According to Linda Eisner, of the 
Williamsport Police Department Records' 
Office, crimes of all types double during periods 
when the moon is full. "It seems like everything 
comes out from under its rock," said Miss 

Theories about the effect the moon has on 

people date back to the early part of the 15th 
Century, when Paracelsus, a Swiss alchemist, 
stated he was convinced that the moon exercised 
a supernatural influence over the brain. 

Miss Eisner went on to say that the crimes 
committed during full moons are not "the every 
day type of crime." She said most of the calls 
received are of a physical nature such as "people 
beating people up." She added that drunk and 
disorderly violations were also prevalent. 

"I've had people laugh at me when I tell 
them the full moon bothers people, but our 
records are our proof," said Miss Eisner. 
Next: Another view . . . and the moon is full.

WACC needs "a full-fledged student 
committee to handle student housing 
complaints," according to David M. 
Heiney, assistant dean of students. 

Dean Heiney said that Dr. William H, 
Feddersen, college president, asked him, 
last spring to form a housing committee to 
take a look at the housing situation 

The college is aware of the poor housing 
being offered to students, according to 
Dean Heiney . 

Handbook planned 

In addition to handling complaints, the 
committee plans to "develop and print a 
student handbook on housing." Advice to 
students on problems concerning safety 
regulations that must be met by landlords, 
legal aspects of leases, and tenant and 
landlords rights will be included. 

"The college is not in the housing 
business," said the dean. And, at the 
present, cannot feasibly get directly in- 

If the college wanted to get into the 
business, a- state law, prohibiting funds for 
community college housing, would have to 
be overcome.

Individuals chided 

If we were given the task of finding a common denominator as to 
why people attend college, the answer would be a relatively simple 
one: We are here to broaden our minds in whatever fields we are 

Keeping this in mind, then, it is easy to see why we were disturbed 
early last week when we learned of a plot contrived by several 

They wished to ban handicapped students from residing in the 
same house with "regular people." 

Luckily, though, the landlord got word of the plan and stopped it 
before it went too far 

We feel that the organizers of this plan (there were only two or 
threel are so narrow-minded that they may not yet be ready to func- 
tion well in the academic world. 

If the tables were to turn on these individuals, and they became 
handicapped in any way, we are sure they would regret even thinking 
of such a plan— let alone trying to get it off the ground. 

In the future, we hope this kind of idea never repeats itself. If it 
does, however, we trust the landlords involved will act appropriately 
to put it in check. 

Apathy runs high PBECC 

Being a community college. William- 
sport obviously does not stress sports. 
However, it's sad to see so little in- 
volvement by the students in what varsity 
sports we do have 

There can never be too many people 
trying out for a team. 

'Hiere are quite a few possible reasons 
for this, Student apathy, faculty reluc- 
tance to let athleties out of class for 
sporting events, inconvenient schedules, 
and numerous personal reasons. 

People who aren't sports fans may feel 
that this toning down of a sports program 
is a compliment to the college's effort to 
stress learning and not championship 
teams. Fans, however, may consider the 
lack of involvement as a lack of pride in 
the school by the students. 

Money, though, is the bottom line. Once 
the season starts the money allocated to 
the sports program will be spent regar- 
dless of how many people try out— as long 
as a team can be fielded 

The administration has committed itself 
in the way of money and now it's up to the 
students to commit themselves in the way 
of participation and attendance.

I thought by the time one reached 
college level, he would know better than to 
play in traffic 

The other night while we were sitting on 
our porch, a few guys from the Hoover 
Dorms were playing catch in the middle of 
Campbell Street. The passing cars had to 
stop while the guy caught the ball or 
frisbee. Then the guys let it go up on 
porches or into the passing cars. 

TTiese guys have no respect for other 
persons' property and could easily have 
walked to the park less than a block away 
The guys stood in the middle of the street 
not the least bit concerned if a car was

Deatrich gongs Chuck Barris 

By Vern Deatrich 
SUrr Writer 

Beginning . ^.y at 7:30 p.m.. Chuck 
Barris will again invade prime-time TV 
with his nighttime version of The Gong 

The Gong Show is a supposed game show 
that gives otherwide norma! people an 
opportunity to make complete fools of 
themselves on national television. Most 
succeed— as does MC Barris and the panel 
of celebrities. 

Fortunately, though, it appears that the 
show has finally gotten through its surplus 
of crazies and is beginning to use people 
who almost have talent. 

Sorry folks, no more 300-pound go-go 
dancers or comedians that sound like they 
went to the Idi Amin School of Comedy and 
Bad Taste 

Barris could help himself, the show, and 
a suffering audience if he grew six inches, 
got a decent haircut, and learned to look at 
the camera and read cue cards. He seems 
intent on wearing funny hats and taking 
his shirt off until the audience pukes from 
too much of a bad thing. 

The celebrity panel usually consists of 
people who aren't exactly overburdened 
with talent themselves. J. P. Morgan (it's 
never been made clear as to what she does 
to be called a celebrity) seems to receive 
some sort of thrill by seeing how many 
times the censor has to bleep her com- 
ments out of the taoe. 

In my opinion, the merciful thing to do 
with "nie Gong Show is to give it a lethal 
dose of gongs.

SUff Writer 

To many students, the words "activity 
fee" are just that— words, 

"What does it mean^" you may ask 

If you are a first-year student, you 
probably came across this baffling phrase 
on your bill as you were paying your 
tuition last month. 

H you are a second-year student, ynu 
probably have heard of the activity fee. 
but you still might not know what it is for 

In general, the activity fee accounts for 
the various happenings the college has to 
offer Specifically, the activity fee is more 
than that. 

Look at Budget 

According to Frank J Bowes, director of 
student activities, if you want to un- 
derstand what the activity fee is all about . 
you must first look at the activities budget 

All together. $72,000 is allocated for 
student activities, Bowes explained the 
breakdown of the percentage of the money 
and the areas to which it is distributed 

The breakdown is as follows; 34 percent 
of the money goes to athletics, which in- 
cludes coaches' salaries; 17 percent goes 
to school publications , 1 1 percent to school 
services, such as Tot Watch and the 
maintenance of the Lair; 10 percent goes 
to special events * Fall and Spring 
Weekends, concerts), The remaining 28 
percent is given to the students in the form 
of dances, movies, the open gym and use of 
the recreation center. 


Yeart»ook Free 

Bowes also added that second year 
students receive free yearbooks Ski trips 
and rollerskaling parties are other ac- 
tivities included in the package. 

As it stands now, the activity fee is $13 
per student per semester Bowes com- 
mented that this is a small amount to pay 
considering the "very broad program" of 
activities at the college 

Asked if the activity fee could go up in 
the near future. Bowes stated that with 
today*s rising costs, it is very likely the fee 
will have to be raised in a few years 
However, he added that he is "dedicated to 
try to keep the fee down." 

Services are Here 

Another major factor in keeping the fee 
low is the availability of many on-campus 
services that would otherwise have to be 
obtained from an outside source, 

Bowes said the food service, carpentry 
and electronics students are used as often 
as possible when working relating to their 
curriculum needs to be done for an ac- 

Of course, there are those students who 
feel an activity fee is worthless. They do 
not participate in the activities and they 
feel they should not have to pay the fee 
Bowes said there is nothing that can be 
done about this type of thinking He added 
the student's lack of participation is their 

"It is up to the individual" whether or 
not he makes use of the activity fee. he 

He is 19. He is an adult. 

He knows that in the event of war, he may be called to serve his 
country. And like any other man. he knows that if he chooses to flee, 
the legal consequences would be his own responsibility. 

He respects and obeys the law. If he doesn't, he knows he will pay 
the price. And the price could be as high as life imprisonment. 

He works nine to five, five days a week. He tends bar on weekends 
to earn extra money. The law says he's old enough. Each week he pays 
his share of federal, state and city taxes. 
He May Marry 

If he chooses, he can marry and father a child. He can just as 
quickly file for divorce and pay alimony and child support. 

For the first time last November, he voted. He didn't play 
"multiple guess" in the voting booth. He prepared himself by watching 
and listening. He voted for the candidates who would speak best for 
him. He felt important. 

. . . Or so he's told 

Suddenly he wonders why. 

He is 19. But he is a child. Or so his state representatives are now 
telling him. 

They are against legislation to reduce the state drinking age to 19. 

Why is he given adult responsibilities and at the same time denied 
adult privileges? 

His name appears 

He is "underage" if found drinking alcohol. But he will pay an 
adult price when arrested and his name appears in the newspaper. 

Are opponents of this legislation trying to turn back the pages for 
decisions made long ago? 

If so. it is too late. It is high time 19 and 20 year olds become 
respected as the adults they are. 

Otherwise, how much longer will young Pennsylvanians believe in 
"equal justice"?

We were discussing a previous date with

Needless to say, this is generally

* Radio Ethiopia' 
ignored by public 

Staff Writer 

Patti Smith's album "Radio Ethiopia" 
was released approximately nine months 
ago. Despite critical approval from the 
rock press (Creem. Rolling Stone. High 
Times, etc, ) Patti Smith remains in virtual 
obscurity from the general music listening 

Despite co-authoring and singing on a 
song from the popular Blue Oyster Cult 
best selling LP "Agents of Fortune, ' 
Despite 3 published books Despite loyal 
fans packing concert halls on her last tour. 

Why can't a pretty young girl with a 
mind like a steel trap find acceptance in 
today's mass market of No i singles'' 

The king of music the Patti Smith Band 
plays what used to be called "un- 
derground" music— music meant to ap- 
peal to a small audience with little, if any. 
regard for the conservative institution that 
controls the airwaves 

Today, underground music has 
developed into "Punk rock" It is loud and 
raunchy It has a steady, primitive beat 
that has been described as vicious. From 
experience, radio stations know this music 

may get complaints from irate listeners 
not accustomed to rock culture 

But. for the initiated. Patti Smith's 
music is expressive— behind the screams 
and growls is a lament for a passing 
lifestyle. The music is fluid and free of 
restraint It is intense It moves 

By her own admission, Patti finds much 
of her musical energy in the past She says 
she draws inspiration from the work of 
Jim Morrison (the Doors). Jimi Hendrix. 
the Velvet Underground, and, of course, 
the Rolling Stones Her lyrics tap into such 
vague sources as the French poets Arthur 
Rimbaud and Charles Baudelaire, and 
"beat" novehsi William S Burroughs 

"Radio Ethiopia" is more than mere 
music, it carries a message The message 
is tough, rock and roll.

To smokers . . . quitting again? 

By Patrick Carlln 

surf Writer 

You've had enough of scare tactics, so I won't fill you with fear. You 
already know what congests your lungs every time you inhale a cigaret. 
You also know why you like cigarets 

Like cigarets^ Love is a better description I was in love once myself 

I felt the soft fragility between my fingers, savoring the pleasure of 
each puff I eagerly succumbed to the erotic practice of reaching for the 
pack, pulling one out. placing it between the lips, watching the flame 
meet the tip, converting tobacco and paper into gratifying grayish wispy 
film, awaiting satisfaction As one ad states it, 'They satisfy'. Oh. how 
they satisfy I repeated this procedure until none remained and the empty 
package had to be discarded 

Now where is the other pack? 

With the new pack comes renewed invitation The familiar colors 
surround the handsomely lettered brand-name making it easy to touch. 
The crisp cellophane peels off effortlessly, the foil unfolds revealing the 
clean white, almost sanitary filter tops, their aroma finding the nostrils, 
tempting the taste, Again the pulling, placing, lighting, inhahng— the love 
has returned. 

It's pathetic What seemed at first to be an expression of maturity 
has evolved into a meaningless, purposeless habit It is a senseless act of 
inevitable suicide. There is nothing that compels you to pull, place, light, 
inhale, but is there nothing to make you slop"* 

Think of the time involved It's pathetic to spend so much time 
working in part to purchase the very things thai shorten your time on 
earth Every action involved in smoking requires a thought and the time 
to think about it even though it has become a habit Imagine all the new 
thoughts that could replace the routine ones Wasted energy is tran- 
sformed into productive thinking. Instead of watching smoke curl around 
the light of a television (also a waste of energy ) or an office lamp, embark 
in a new creative hobby such as wood sculpture, letter -writing, a musical 
instrument, anything that occupies the hands. 

Take the time to think about smoking and the things you loved about 
it will become reasons to quit 

The fact that you've tried to quit any numtjer of times before tells you 
what to expect. The cravings that weakened you can be faced with a front 
of intimidation. Attitude is vital to your cause Quitting takes a 

'They satisfy' 

tremendous amount of will power and concentration. 

Here is the irony; the concentration is directed at anything to keep 
you from smoking instead of focusing on a particular objective. The more 
time you can put between you and your last cigaret is proportionate to 
your confidence. 

Quitting cigarets is not a self-denial of a need: it's more of an 
acquisition of freer thoughts. Learn to love living as a non-smoker- 
Still clinging to the past? Think of the lighted cigarets falling 
somewhere under the seal of the car while driving on the freeway or 
between cushions on an (ex) friend's sofa. 

How about when the flame and-or smoke scald your eyeball during a 
lightup"' If the burns in your clothes or furniture aren't enough to con- 
vince you (or can you live with it?), try using a phone just used by a 
smoker- Pain isn't the only reason for avoiding dentist appointments. 
Realizing how much your mind is controlled by cigarets should be 
enough to make you plead for freedom. How much do you love freedom? 
On Oct. 5. 1976. I quit smoking and 1 love it.

One example the article describes is 
particularly touching. Woody got a letter 
from a former player who had entered 
Harvard Medical School, saying he 
couldn't stand the pressure and was 
dropping out Woody was on the next plane 
to Boston, "Two hours later," Brondfield 
writes "he barged into the startled 
student's room. Woody rudely thrust the 
boy into a chair and laid it on him. 

furiously. In essence, he wasn't going lo 
allow the boy to disappoint his family— and 
no former player of his was going to be a 
quitter. He was going to stay there and 
finish medical school " With that, the 
coach walked away His former player is 
now a distinguished neurosurgeon 

He's quite a guy. According to Ohio state 
law, he'll have to retire at 70. But as one of 
his aides said: "Who'd have the nerve to 
tell him''" 

Brondfield: Hayes is ^colorful, controversial' 

Colorful, controver.sial Woody Hayes, 
Ohio State football coach for 27 years, is 
profiled in the September's Reader's 
Digest in an article by Jerry Brondfield 

The stats on Woody's career are 
staggering. Brondfield tells us: "Hayes 
has turned out more All-Americans (39).' 
and has sent more players into the pros 
than any other coach in history

The new parking stickers will be valid 
for a five-year period lo coincide with the

According lo Smeak, unauthorized

Allow Us To 
Introduce Ourselves 

We're component stereo specialists. Our 
job is to help you choose a component music 
system that's 'right' for your listening 
requirements and your pocketbook. 

Our whole success as a business 
depends on our ability to match you with the 
right system. Here are some of the ways 
we help you make the right choice.... 


We're Very Careful 
About What We Sell. 

We're very careful about the lines we 
carry. We're not so greedy that we'll sell 
anything just to make a buck. 

Everything on display in our store is 
there because we personally feel it offers 
good performance and value. 

If something doesn't meet our 
standards, oul it goes! 

When you visit, you'll encounter some 
of the most famous names in stereo, as well 
as many names you've probably never heard 
of. Rest assurred, however, that everything 
in our store is there because we feel it's 
good enough to be associated with our name. 

Bill Smeal, Service Manager 

2 We Believe In Offering 
The Best Possible Service 

Service is an important part of our 
story. We have our own Service 

If anything should ever go wrong with 
stereo components purchased from us, bring 
them back! We have the parts, the test 
equipment, and the trained personnel 
necessary to return your equipment to 
working order in the shortest possible time. 

3 We're Proud Of The 
People You'U Meet 
When You Visit! 

You'll like the way you're treated when 
you visit. You'll find our people helpful and 
courteous, willing to take the time to answer 
your questions. 

Remember: the people who work at our 
store are there because they want to be. 
Our staff likes music, they like people, and 
they enjoy being around component stereo. 

We're proud of our people. We consider 
them our greatest asset! 

Here Are Some Of The People 
You'U Meet When You Visit 
The Stereo House...

4 We're Small Enough 
To Care! 

We feel we're at the optimum size for a 
stereo store. We're large enough to take 
advantage of special purchases and quantity 
discounts, but small enough to care about 
customer satisfaction. We believe in 'going 
the extra mile' for our customers. We want 
our customers to be our customers for life, 
and we want them to recommend us to their 

5 You're Invited To 
Handle The Equipment 
On Display! 

Our store is not a museum. Rather, it's 
a place where people get together to discuss 
the latest in stereo, and to listen. 

We invite our customers to listen and 
compare as long as they want, and actually 
operate the controls of the equipment 

they're interested in. Indeed, we encourage 
our customers to bring in their own records, 
so they can compare our equipment with 
similarly-priced equipment available 

6 We Make It Easy To 
Buy Right! 

We've taken the mystery out of 
component stereo by assembling system 
'packages' consisting of receivers, turntables, 
and speakers which work particularly well 

Our packages are available in all price 
ranges, and reflect our goal of always 
offering the best sound-per-dollar value avail- 
able. Several of our current systems are 
described on the following pages.

How To Buy A Stereo 


You are about to make one of the most 
enjoyable purchases you will ever make. 

In the months and years to come, you'll 
find your new stereo system will be a 
continuing source of pleasure. 

Whether relaxing, partying, studying, or 
just cleaning your apartment, you'll find your 
new stereo system will always he there . . , 
bringing you into close contact with one of 
man's highest pleasures: music. 

You Don't Have To 
Be An Expert! 

Many people have the mistaken impres- 
sion that you have to become sort of an 
'expert' to buy a component stereo. 
To which we say: "No way!" 
Buying a stereo requires nothing more 
than a little basic knowledge (which we try 
to give you on the next few pages) and a 
little common sense. 

And You Don't Have To 
Spend Tons Of Money! 

Quality stereo performance begins in 
the two hundred to three hundred dollar 
price range, and extends up to many 
thousands of dollars. 

How much should you spend? 

The answer depends on what you want 
out of a stereo. 

By qualifying your own demands and 
expectations, you can pretty quickly decide 
how much you should spend for a complete

ground to other activities, stereo systems in 
this price range will do just fine. 

Component systems in this price range 
offer satisfying reproduction of most of the 
music contained on your records, as well as 
quality AM and FM stereo performance. 
Only the lowest bass notes have been 
compromised for reasons of size, economy, 
and to permit more attention to be paid to 
the critical mid-range frequencies (where 
most of the music is contained). 

Systems in this price range are perfect 
for dorms and apartments, where space is at 
a premium. 

Intermediate Systems 
$400 To $600 

Component stereo systems in this price 
range offer fuller sound, lower distortion, and 
better record players. 

Systems in this price range are for 
critical music lovers on a budget — people 
who listen intently to their music, but don't 
want to overbuy. By buying in this price 
range, you can take home excellent 
performance, and still have enough money 
left over to buy records (or add a tape 
recorder for more flexibility). 

The speakers found in intermediate 
systems offer better bass response and 
more accurate tonal balance, the receivers 
are more powerful and have better tuners, 
and the record players are easier to operate 
and gentler on your records. 

Best-Buy Systems 
$600 To $800 

Systems in this price range are even 
better! These systems represent the point of 
diminishing returns in stereo — the point 
where your money buys the most sound-per- 
dollar value. 

Systems in this price range have 
enough power, accuracy, and clarity to effort- 
lessly reproduce your favorite music at even 
high volume levels without a trace of 
annoying distortion. 

Perfectionist's Systems 
$800 And Up 

The sky's the limit in stereo, depending 
on how loud you want your system to play, 
how many pairs of speakers you want to 
add, and what tape recording facilities you 
desire. Systems above $800 work hard to 
come closer and closer to the theoretical 
ideal of 'a concert hall in your home.'

What Should You 
Look For When 
Shopping For A 

The Importance Of Balance 

The most important thing to look for is 
the system as a whole. A stereo system has 
to be baJanced. Each component has to be 
properly matched to the other components. 

By concentrating on the system as a 
whole, you avoid overbuying one 
component, or underbuying another. 

How Important Are 

If meaningful standards existed, which 
everybody agreed upon, selecting a stereo 
would be simply a matter of searching-out 

the best specifications. 

Unfortunately, no such standards exist. 
And there is increasing recognition that 
many of the qualities that make for good 
stereo performance in the home cannot be 
measured in a test lab. 

Furthermore, specifications only 
measure one unit's performance: there is no 
way to measure the performance of a 
complete system. 

Specifications should be considered 
guidelines, but — in the last analysis — ynur 
own ears are more useful in shopping for a 

What About Magazine Test 

Magazine 'reviews' and 'ratings' are fun 
to read, but suffer from the problem that 
they are either 'objective' (which means they 
measure specifications — see above) or 
'subjective' (in which the reviewer simply 
tells his opinions about how something

With Music For Just $469! 

The Stereo House has taken the mystery 
out of component stereo by assembling 
system 'packages' consisting of receivers, 
speakers, and turntables that work parti- 
cularly well together. Here's one of our 
most popular systems, perfect for tdorms antl 
apartments where budget and space are 
equally important considerations. 
Harman/Kardon 330C AM/FM Receiver 

The Harman/Kardon 330C is the latest 
version of one of the most tried-and-proven 
receivers ever built. Over 200,000 330's are in 
use around the world! The latest version, the 
330C, has a newly-designed front panel, and 
a more sensitive tuner section. Power output: 
20 watts RMS per channel. 8 ohms, 20 Hz to 
20 kHz, less than 0.5% distortion. 
Genesis One Speakers 

Genesis speakers are made in New 
Hampshire by a young-and-growing company, 
run by people with many years of experience 
gained at some of New England's older and 
larger speaker manufactuers. Genesis Ones 

combine high-performance with relatively 
small size. They're less than nine inches deep, 
yet able to reproduce a 32 Hz note! Genesis 
engineers rolled-off response below 45 Hz 
slightly, to increase system efficiency (so 
they'll play louder). 
B.I.C. 920 Turntable 

The B.I.C. 920 is a belt-driven multiple- 
play turntable which combines the 
performance advantages found on B.I.C. s 
more expensive models with economy. The 
920 performs equally well, whether playing 
one record at a time, or stacking up to six 
records. The B.I.C. 920 is made in the United 
States by a company with over thirty-seven 
years of experience.

Here Are Some Of 
The Things You 
Should Know 
Before You Buy.... 


The Receiver Is The Heart Of A 
Component Stereo System 

Almost all component stereo systems 
are built around receivers. Receivers are 
popular because they offer value and 
convenience. By combining a tuner and 
amplifier into one unit, manufacturers are 
able to save a lot of money over the cost of 
building two separate units. This makes 
more performance available at lower cost to 
the consumer. 

Receivers offer convenience because aU 
of the controls you need to operate your 
system with are grouped on a single front 
panel. These controls include volume (to 
adjust how loud your system will play), 
selector (to choose between records and 
FM), and tuning (which chooses the radio 
station you'll listen to). 

Over one hundred different receiver 
models are on the market. Prices range 
from less than two hundred dollars to over 
one thousand dollars. Which is best for you? 

What Should You Look For? 

Power output is the first thing most 
people think of when looking at a receiver. 
"How much power does it put out?" 

This can be very misleading, however. 
Power is only one of the things you should 
look for when evaluating receivers. This is 
because power output is only very loosely 
related to how loud a system will play in 
your home. This is because your ears are 
set up on a logarithmic basis. You have to 
double receiver power (i. e. , go from 25 watts 

Come To The Stereo House For 
Hard-To-Find Stereo Components Like 
The Nakamichi 600 Series... 

The Nakamichi 630 FM stereo tuner/ 
preamp (above left) and the Nakamichi 620 
power amplifier reflect the type of advanced 
stereo components you'll find on display at 
The Stereo House. Whether you choose them 
for their state-of-the-art performance or 
dramatic styling, you'll agree these compon- 
ents are different from any you've ever 
encountered elsewhere!

a channel to over 50 watts a channel) to 
make a very tiny increase in the sound level 
of your system. 

More important than power, in most 
cases, is the tuner performance of a 
receiver. Differences between tuners in 
equivalently-powered receivers can make a 
big difference in how much pleasure you'll 

enjoy while listening to FM stereo radio 
broadcasts. The better the tuner, the more 
you'll enjoy FM stereo. This is because your 
favorite stations will come in free from 
annoying noise and distortion, and there will 
be more left/right stereo separation. 

Other areas of importance in receiver 
design include silence (the better the 
receiver, the less noise it adds to the 
music), and workmanship I reliability. 
Receivers also differ in the amount of control 
flexibility they offer. Finally, styling is very 
important. The receiver will be a very 
prominent part of your stereo system. Make 
sure you like its styling, and feel comfortable 
around it. 


There Are Three Types Of Record 
Players On The Market 

Automatic turntables are refined versions 
of the familiar 'record changers' you may have 
grown up with. Automatic turntables permit 

you to stack up to sue records for up to 
three hours of uninterrupted music. 

Single-play turntables play only one 
record at a time. Single-play turntables used 
to be the preferred choice for component 
systems, until the automatics became 
refined in performance and appearance. 
Many perfectionists still believe that single- 
play turntables are 'better,' although each 
year the performance distinction between 
them gets thinner. 

Semi-automatics bridge the gap between 
the convenience of an automatic turntable, 
and the performance and simplicity of a 
single-play turntable. Semi-automatics offer 
automatic cueing. This means that pressing a 
button causes the tonearm to lower the 
needle onto the lead-in groove of the record. 
At the end of the record, the tonearm will 
lift and return to its rest. 

Three Types Of Mechanisms 

The oldest type of turntable drive is the 
idler-wheel. The idler wheel transmits

You'll Never Outgrow The New 

Technology Built Into The 

Stereo House's Advent 300 System! 

The Stereo House was one of the first 
stereo dealers in the country to recog- 
nize the importance of the Advent 300 
FM receiver. Right now, we're featuring it in 
a special system built around Yamaha NS-5 
speakers and a Philips 437 single-play turn- 
table. This system reproduces both records 
and FM stereo broadcasts with outstanding 
clarity, and offers tremendous potential for 
upgrading in the future. 
Advent 300 FM Receiver 

The Advent 300 is built around a totally 
new preamp section which delivers a perfect 
transfer of music from record to receiver. No 
hiss, noise, or distortion is added. The Advent 
300's preamp is so good, in fact, that it 
outperforms separate preamps many times its 
cost. At a later date, you can bypass the 
Advent 300's amplifier section and use it as a 
tuner preamp with a more powerful amp. The 
300's tuner section offers excellent 
performance even in poor reception areas, 
and has a no-slip vernier tuning dial and two 
Light Emitting Diodes to aid tuning. 

Yamaha NS-5 Speakers 

Yamaha NS-5's come from the world's 
largest manufacturer of musical instruments, 
a company with over 90 years of experience. 
Little wonder that the NS-5's are one of the 
most natural-sounding speakers available! 
They use a ten-inch acoustic suspension 
woofer and a one-inch soft dome tweeter, 
joined by a sophisticated crossover network. 
Philips 437 Turntable 

The Philips 437 is one of our most 
popular single-play turntables. It combines 
precision performance, rugged dependability, 
and ease of operation. Belt-drive is used to 
ensure freedom from background noise. 
Tonearm cueing and arm pickup at the end 
of the record are automatic.

energy from the motor pulley to the inside 
rim of the turntable platter. The idler is soft, 
so it can filter out undesired mechanical 
vibration (known as rumble). 

Newer is the belt-drive. Belt-drivers 
were originally found only on expensive 
single-play turntables. Today, however, 
there are several popularly priced automatic 
turntables which use an elastic belt to filter 
out motor vibration. 

The newest type of turntable drive is 
direct-drive. The platter on a direct-drive 
turntable is turned by a special electron- 
ically controlled motor which spins at exactly 
33^3 revolutions-per-minute. Direct-drive 
used to be found only on the most expensive 
single-play turntables, although today many 
popularly priced models are available. 

Which Type Is Best? 

When shopping for a turntable, the 
most important thing to remember is that 
it's not the type of drive that makes one 
turntable better than another, it's the total 
performance of the unit. Here are some 
other important aspects of turntable 

Pay particular attention to the tonearm. 
In general, the lighter the tonearm, the 
better. Lightness is an advantage, as less 
tracking pressure is needed to move the 
tonearm across the record. This translates 
into extended life for your records. It also 
means that warped records will sound 
better, and you will have a wider selection 
of cartridges to choose from. 

We're Proud To 
Recommend Our 
Yamaha YP-D6 Turntable' 
To Our Most Demanding 

The Yamaha YP-D6 Natural Sound stereo 
turntable is for the music lover who wants a 
combination of state-of-the-art performance, 
convenience, and beauty. The YP-D6 
combines direct-drive performance and 
reliability with the convenience of automatic 
tonearm cueing and pick-up at the end of the 
record. The tonearm is so good you can 
install any of today's top cartridges without 
compromise. $260 (less cartridge) 

Shock-mounting is something else you'll 
want to look into. You'll want to be able to 
walk across the room without the tonearm 
bouncing all over the record, and you won't 
want loud music to cause feedback in your 
system (which can happen if the turntable 
picks up floor vibrations caused by the 

Cueing permits you to pick-up and 
lower the tonearm at any point on the 
record. The gentler the cueing, and the 
easier it is to use, the more you'll enjoy 
operating your turntable. 


speakers Are The Most Critical Part Of 
A Component Stereo System 

Speakers directly influence the sound 
quality of a stereo system more than any 
other component. 

Speakers take the electrical energy from 
your receiver and translate it into mechanical 
energy (i.e. sound waves) which your ear 
perceives as music. 

There are literally hundreds of models 
to choose from, and all models look pretty 
much the same. How do you choose the 
speakers that are right for you? 

The Starting Point Is The Name 
Of The Manufacturer 

We have found that the single most 
important thing to look for when choosing 
speakers is the name of the manufacturer. 

These days, everybody and their 
brother seems to be making speakers, but 
only a few companies are really good at it. 
The other companies make speakers either 
to 'fill out' their line, or because their 
speakers can be 'pushed' onto consumers 
who are attracted into the store by big 
discounts on systems built around name- 
brand receivers and turntables.

Advent speakers for almost two years. Tfie 
current version is the best we've ever offered, 
since Yamaha has introduced a new line, and 
Advent has improved the Large Advents. 
Yamaha CR-620 AM/FM Receiver 

Yamaha's new for '77 line combines 
traditional Yamaha craftsmanship with entirely 
new circuits which deliver more power-per- 
dollar and one-half the distortion of last years 
models. The result is a receiver which offers 
incredible value. Power output of the Yamaha 
CR-620 is 35 watts RMS per channel, 8 ohms, 
20 Hz to 20 kHz, less than 0.05% distortion, 
New Large Advent Speakers 

The New L^rge Advent is a refinement of 
one of the most successful loudspeakers ever 
introduced. Over 500,000 Large Advents are 
in use around the world. People chose the 
Large Advent because of its extended bass 

response and smooth octave-to-octave 
musical balance. The New Advent features a 
redesigned tweeter, better able to handle the 
increased high frequency energy found on 
today's records and tapes. 
Technics SL-23 TumUble 

The Technics SL-23 is our most popular 
belt-driven semi-automatic turntable. It's built 
around a servo-controlled motor which locks 
onto power line frequency for rock-solid 
speed stability, and a rumble-reducing belt 
drive, Viscuous damped cueing, and auto- 
matic tonearm pick-up and return at the end 
of the record means the SL-23 is convenient 
to use. Styled in beautiful grey and black, with 
built-in strobe light to measure exact speed.

The companies that are succeeding in 
the speaker business, and will remain in 
business for many years to come, are 
generally the smaller, independent 
companies who specialize in building 

These independent speaker manufac- 
turers generally have the most advanced 
research and development programs, and 
the most intensive quality control 
procedures. In addition, the independents 
usually build more speakers. This gives them 
the opportunity to invest in assembly-line 
techniques, which reduce production costs, 
permitting more value to be passed on to 
the consumer. 

What Else Should You Look For When 
Shopping For Speakere? 

More important than the size of the 
cabinet, the number of drivers (i. e. woofers 
and tweeters), or the size of the drivers is 
the total performance of the speaker. 

Total performance is something you can 
judge for yourself by careful listening. Here 
are some of the things to bsten for when 
comparing speakers. 

1. Bass response. Check bass response 
by playing a record with really deep organ 
pedal notes. A classic test record is the 
Columbia recording of the Saint-Saens Organ 
Symphony. About two-thirds of the way 
through the first side is a really deep organ 
pedal note. 

Play the passage on various speakers, 
and you'll be amazed at how forcefully some 
speakers will reproduce it, and how weak it 
will sound on other speakers. 

2. Musical balance. More subtle, but 
actually more important to your total listen- 
ing pleasure, is the overall musical balance 
of the speaker. The overall musical balance 
determines the accuracy with which the 
speaker can reproduce your favorite music. 

An accurate speaker is one that neither 
adds, nor detracts, from the original

0.05% distortion. 
Genesis Hi Speakers 

Genesis Hi's lack the tonal exaggerations 
and larger than life' qualities characteristic of 
speakers that sacrifice accuracy for 'impres- 
sive sound.' Instead, music played through 
Genesis Ill's emerges with an openness and 

realism which will immediately be appreciated 
by people familiar with live music. Genesis Ill's 
are forty inches tall, but take up only about 
one cubic foot of floor space. Four separate 
drivers are used: three active, and one passive 
radiator which smoothes bass response 
without sacrificing efficiency. 
Philips 312 TumUble 

The Philips 312 is the latest version of 
one of our favorite single-play turntables, we 
like the 312 because of its simple design. 
Philips has replaced the mechanical parts 
usually found on turntables with electronic 
circuits activated by feather-touch 
pushbuttons. This increases the 312's reliabil- 
ity, an makes it a joy to operate. The tonearm 
lifts at the end of the record.

program source materials. 

We have found that a well-recorded 
vocalist, backed-up with acoustic 
instruments, make possible dramatic 
comparisons between speakers. Two such 
records that come to mind are Gordon 
Lightfoot's 'Sundown,' and Joni Mitchell's 
'Miles of Aisles. ' In each case, bsten to how 
naturally the vocalist's voice comes through. 

3. Dispersion. Pay particular attention 
to the way high-frequencies are spread 
aroimd the room. Good dispersion permits 
the speakers to present a stereo image 
which places the performers in their proper 
location across the 'sound stage' you are 
creating in your room, and also gives you 
more flexibility of where you can place the 
speakers relative to your favorite couch or 
easy chair. 

Check dispersion by tuning the tuner to 
a point between stations, so that a steady 
'hiss' is heard. Walk back and forth in front 
of the speakers. On good speakers, there 
will be little difference in sound as you walk 
back and forth. 

4. Transient response. Transient 
response refers to the ability of the speaker 
to reproduce quick, complex soimds like 
guitar strings or clapping hands. Careful 
listening to the Lightfoot or Mitchell records 
above will show you how speakers differ in 
this ability.

The New Bose 601 

Direct- Reflecting Speakerl 

The new Bose 601 looks, works, and 
sounds different from any conventional floor- 
standing speaker. It uses six drivers — two 
woofers and four tweeters — to spread the 
proper balance of direct to reflected sound to 
every corner of your listening room. 



When comparing speakers, both pairs of 
speakers should be played at the same 
volume level. If one pair of speakers is 
playing just a tiny bit louder, it will sound 
much better. For this reason, an equal 
volume level comparison is best. 

Second, you should remember that 
speaker placement greatly affects sound 
quality. Make sure that both pairs of 
speakers imder comparison are located in 
the same general position in the room. 
Speakers on the floor wiU have better bass, 
speakers at ear level will have better 
mid-range and treble response. 

Third, make sure that the tone controls 
on the receiver are 'flat' (or in the vertical 
position), and that the high-frequency level 
adjustments on the backs of the speaker 
cabinets are in their 'normal' position. 

Which Type Of 
Tape Recorder Is 
Best For You? 

No System Is Complete 
Without A Tape Recorder 

A tape recorder can greatly increase 
the amount of pleasure you get from your 
stereo system. Here are some of the things 
you can do with a tape recorder. . . . 

*Make copies of your favorite records 
before they become scratched or worn! 
Records are very perishable. They are 
easily damaged, and become worn through 
repeated playing. In addition, records attract 
dust and dirt particles from the air. By 
making tape copies of your favorite records 
before their condition deteriorates, you can 
continue to enjoy them with "first-play" 
quality, time aifter time. 

*Increase the size of your music library! 
When you own a tape recorder, your 
friend's record library can become your own! 
Simply borrow his records, or bring your 
recorder over to his home and connect it to 
his system for an evening of listening and 

Live concerts, FM broadcasts, and local 
libraries are additional sources of music. 
Many local groups will be flattered if you ask 
them for permission to tape one of their 
performances. Feature concerts and "new 
releases" hours on FM — often broadcast 
with limited commercials — are perfect for 
taping. Likewise, many public and college 
libraries have growing record departments. 
You'U be surprised how much free music is 
available for the asking. 

* Program your favorite music! Records 
force you to listen to musical selections in 
the order that they were recorded. With a 
tape recorder, however, you can record only 
the selections that you want to hear, in the 

Choose The Yamaha TC-5 1 IS If You 

Want The Best Cassette Recorder 

Cinder $3001 

The Yamaha TC-51 IS is our recommen- 
dation for adding the pleasure and 
convenience of cassette recording to 
systems in the four to seven hundred 
dollar price range. Here are a few reasons 
the Yamaha TC-51 IS is such an excellent 

The Yamaha TC-51 IS was designed as 
an integral part of one of the most-respected 
lines of stereo components in the world. 
Specifications tell only part of the story. 
Frequency response: 30 Hz to 15 kHz using 
Chromium-Dioxide tape. Signal-to-noise ratio: 
better than 60 dB (with Dolby* "on '). Wow 
and flutter: less than 0.07%. Total distortion- 
less than \.b% (0 VU. 1 kHz). 

There is strong "family resemblance" 
between the TC-51 IS and the other models 
in the Yamaha line. The TC-51 IS is finished 
in brushed aluminum, and comes complete 
with a contrasting wooden cabinet 

The TC-51 IS's front-loading design 

•Trademark. Dolby». Inc. 


makes it perfect for shelf-mounting next to 
your receiver or amplifier. The tape compart- 
ment was designed for easy access, making it 
easy to clean and demagnetize tape heads. 

A single Tape Selector switch adjusts the 
machine for best performance with 
Chromium-Dioxide. High-Energy, or Ferri- 
Chrome cassettes. In addition, a timer can be 
connected for tape recording your favorite 
radio programs when you're not at home. 
Also included is a built-in headphone jack and 
twin microphone inputs. 
Expanded-Scale VU Meters 

The TC-51 IS's meters give an accurate 
indication of the energy being put on the

way up to -1^6 dB. 


order that you want to hear them. This puts 
you in control of the music. 

*Enjoy on-the-go listening pleasure! If 
you have a tape player in your car, you can 
record your favorite music at home, and 
enjoy it while driving. This permits you to 
get twice as much pleasure out of your 
records, and makes driving to work more 

There Are Four Types 
Of Tape Recorders On 
The Mariket 

Eight-Track Recorders 

Eight-track recorders are the least- 
satisfactory from the point of view of sound 
quality and operating convenience. Eight- 
track tape recorders suffer from quality 
problems due to narrow track viidth, slow 
tape speed, and alignment problems caused 
by the shifting record/playback head. Eight- 
track tape recorders are inconvenient to 
use, because they have a relatively slow 
fast-forward speed, and they lack the ability 
to rewind tape. Tfiis means you cannot 
back-up the tape and quickly replay a piece 
of music you have just recorded (to check 
how the recording came out). 

Because of these problems inherent in 
the medium, few manufacturers have 
devoted much time to developing 
high-quality/price-competitive eight-track 
units suited for use in quality component 
systems. Eight-tracks remain the best-suited 
for use in portables, three-piece 'compacts,' 
and automobiles. 


Let The Haiman/Kardon 2000 Introduce 
You To The Pleasures Of Cassette 

If you've never operated an advanced 
cassette recorder like th HK 2000, you've got 
a surprise coming. The HK 2000 can copy 
your favorite records and FM broadcasts and 
play them back with thrilling fidelity. The HK 
2000 uses a servo-controlled motor and 
massive flywheel for speed stability, and 
constant-current record circuits and special 
permalloy head for wide, smooth frequency 
response. The operation of the Dolby* Noise 
Reduction Circuits can be tweaked' for the 
brand of recording tape you're using. $3QQ 

Open-Reel Recorders 

Open-reel recorders are the preferred 
choice if you are going to be doing much 
"live" recording. Open-reel recorders 

operate at higher tape speeds. This 
reduces noise and distortion, and yields 
better "head room," or freedom from 
overload. If you are going to record your 
friend's rock group, and submit the tape to a 
record label for consideration, open-reel is 
what you want. 

You'll also want an open-reel recorder 
if you're after extended recording time. By 
choosing an open-reel recorder with auto- 
matic reverse, or one with large 10!/2-inch 
reel capacity, you'll be able to enjoy an 
evening's music — including complete 
operas — without interruption. 

The Nakamichi 500 Features Mike/Line 

The Makamichi 500 is one of our most 
popular machines. Features include a 
servo-controlled motor for rock-solid speed 
stability, and wide-range VG meters. Separate 
left, right, and "blend" microphone inputs may 
be independently mixed with line inputs. Also 
included is a Memory Rewind function. 


Cassette Recorders 

We recommend cassette recorders to 
people who are primarily interested in 
copying records and FM broadcasts in the 
home. This is because cassette recorders 
offer the ultimate in convenience, and the 
best sound-per-dollar value available. 

Cassette recorders are easy to operate, 
because you just snap the cassette into 
place, and it's ready to play or record. Your 
hand never touches the tape, which is 
enclosed in the plastic cassette housing. 

Cassette recorders offer the best value, 
because component manufacturers have 
devoted most of their research and develop- 
ment dollars to improving their performance. 
Ever since the Dolby Noise Reduction 
System* eliminated the "hiss" which was 
once thought inherent in the medium, the 
major component manufacturers have 
attempted to out-do each other in terms of 
offering better cassette performance for less 
money. As a result, the quality of all 
cassette recorders has increased greatly 
during the past few years. 

If your previous association with 
cassettes has been with $9. 95 portables, 
you'll be amazed at the many fine models we 
display. You'll find even the less-expensive 
models are capable of excellent 
performance. And, when we compare 
'source' and 'tape' while recording with 
one of our better machines, your ears will 
find it nearly impossible to tell the

The Elcaset is the newest type of tape 
recorder to appear. It was introduced at the 
Consumer Electronics Show in 1976. The 
Elcaset combines the 'snap-in' loading 
convenience of the cassette with the better 
performance offered by higher tape speeds 
and wider tape tracks. 

Although the Elcaset has the potential 
of offering the 'best of both possible worlds, ' 
it has not yet reached its full stride. This is 
because Elcasets do not offer the sound-per- 
dollar available on standard cassette. When 
more manufacturers start building Elcaset 
units, and more people start buying them, 
this situation will undoubtedly change.

What To Look For 
When Shopping For 
A Cassette Recorder 

General Considerations 

The amount of money that you should 
invest in a cassette recorder depends on 
what type of system you're going to connect 
it to, and how much operating flexibility you 

If you have an expensive stereo 
system, you probably won't be happy if you 
add an inexpensive cassette recorder. You'll 
find that there will be too much difference 
between original source material and the 
cassette copies. 

On the other hand, if you have an 
inexpensive system, it doesn't make sense 
to 'overbuy' more cassette performance than 
you can hear. 

Rough Guidelines 


In general, cassette recorders costing 
between two and three hundred dollars are 
suitable for most systems costing up to five 
hundred dollars. 

Cassette recorders in the range from 
three hundred to five hundred are good 
enough for just about any system costing up 
to a thousand dollars. 
$500 And Up 

If you have a 'super system' which 
originally cost over a thousand dollars, 
you're best off looking at cassette recorders 
in the five hundred dollar range and up. 
These recorders will give you the perform- 
ance and operating flexibility you have grown 
to love in your expensive system. 

Convenience Is Important

horizontal space to place your recorder next 
to your receiver and record player.

How Do Cassette 
Recorders Differ? 

Here's what happens to cassette 
recorders as price goes up. 

a) Freqmnq/ response improves. More of 
the music, in particular, more high fi-equency 
energy, will be recorded on the tape. Lesser 
machines deaden the music by omiting some 
of the all-important high-frequency 

b) Signal-to-noise ratio improves. Less 
hum and noise will be recorded on the tape 
along with the music. 

c) Distortion decreases. Tape copies will 
sound clearer, more like the original source 

d) Tape handling improves. This yields 
better speed stability (for waver-free 
performance), and smoother tape handling 
(with less danger of breaking the tape). 

e) Meter accuracy improves. You will get 
a better indication of how much signal is 
being put on the tape. This helps you avoid 
under-recording (which increases noise) and 
over-recording (which increases distortion), 

f) Control flexibility increases. The 
better machines permit you to 'fine tune' 
your recorder for the specific brand of 
recording tape you are using. The better 
machines also permit you to 'monitor, ' that 
is, instantaneously compare source material 
with the tape copy. 

g) Subjective considerations. Styling and 
control operation become more refined, 
more pleasing.

was to test the interest and leadership of 
those wishing to join. 

Pledge week involved such things as a 
work night, cleaning and doing work at the 
school ; a trip downtown when they went to 
Burger King and "had it their way"; 
having the mid-break entertainment at the 
dance on Wednesday night where they 
sang some of their favorite songs; and 
having a "wild" party with a tug-o-war

Do you have a hobby that you would like 
to share with someone"' Are you interested 
in developing a new hobby? 

If you answered yes to either of these 
questions, then the college has just the 
opportunity for you. 

Beginning this evening at 7 in the Lair, 
"hobby nights" will be held. They will 
continue at least twice a month thereafter. 

This type of activity has become in- 
creasingly popular on many college 
campuses, according to Frank J. Bowes, 
director of student activities. 

He said the idea of a hobby night is to 
provide an area where persons can gather 
to work on and discuss their specialties. 

Professional consultants in each field 
will be called in to demonstrate their craft. 

Bowes would like to see the hobby nighl 
ievelop into a training program, where a 
jerson can learn how to fuhe up a car or do 
jBsic carpentry projects, 

An organizational meeting was held last 
week to determine how many students are 
interested and what hobbies will be 

Bowes commented that the success or 
failure of hobby night depends upon the 

Last year, the program, in its first year, 
had 12 students who participated. Some of 
the hobbies represented last year included 
woodcarving, metal work, oil painting, 
macrame, ceramics, silver work, coin 
'■oUecting, leather craft and upholstery 

Bowes outlined some of the purposes of 
having a hobby night. Besides giving the 
students something to do, he said, the 

sessions will ^expand interest" in dil- 
ferent hobbies. 

Also, he added, the finished hobbies can 
be profitable if the students decide to sell 
their crafts. 

A craft fair is planned in October, where 
many of the objects made at the hobby 
nights will be sold. 

Bowes cited the possibility of the activity 
becoming a community -wide event if the 
idea catches on among the college 
students . 

Bowes feels the hobby nights can 
become something "really spectacular" if 
enough interest is generated. 

Right now. he says, it could "develop in 
any direction,"

Enrollment tor the fall 1977 academic 
year showed another increase this year. 
This is the third consecutive year the

Students enrolled at the college come 
from the entire state of Pennsylvania, with 
42 percent of the students attending from

from 10 different states. An additional two 
percent of the enrollment are students a:

James Tule, dean of the college's

reported a projected high school 
enrollment of 1.360 students at this time. 
Since students from 17 high schools in 12 

sponsoring districts attend the college on a 
nine week rotation basis, the enrollment 
figures may increase because of additional 
students reporting during the next nine-

Sanctis, assistant dean of community 
Education. Those classes started the week 
of Sept. 12. 

Whadd'ya say? 

Do you think Pennsylvania should have a 
mandatory death penalty for people found 
guilty of killing a law enforcement official? 

Signals needed 

How much longer are students of the Williamsport Area Com- 
munity College going to be subjected to the perils of crossing West 
Third Street's "fast lane" between the Bardo Gym and the Klump 
Academic Center? 

Will there ultimately come the unfortunate time when a student 
will be fatally struck down by a speeding motor vehicle? 

Adding further fuel to the fire, is the lack of any warning signs or 
flashing red lights, alerting the motorist that he is approaching the 
campus. Since the campus is located on both sides of the highway, it 
makes crossing a necessary evil. 

According to the report on total student enrollment from Chester 
D. Shuman, director of admissions and records at the college, 3,249 
students attend college with an additional 1,360 high school vocational 
students. And according to Chief Security Officer Lawrence P. Smeak, 
an average of two students are struck while crossing West Third St. 
each year. 

We of the SPOTLIGHT don't feel it is fair for these students to take 
their lives into their own hands while crossing the "fast lane." 

Crossing guards are not the answer to the problem. 

What we ask is that City Council moves toward an action that will 
not only prevent accidents, but generally save an occasional life, also. 

One way of going about a logical solution to the problem is to 
suggest that PennDOT install speed reduction warning signs between 
the 900 and 1100 blocks of West Third St This would then encompass 
the extremely hazardous territory of the campus itself. 

Until this is done, remember to look both ways and pray. 

McNally gives aid to students 

Students are encouraged to seek 
resolution to their problems and 
complaints. Thomas M. McNally, 
student ombudsman, explained his 
office is available to assist students 
who are unable to get results through 
other means or who are unsure about 
which Individual to see in seeking ar 

McNally stated most problems can 
be salved by discussing the problem 
with the instructor involved. If this 
channel is unsuccessful, the student is 
advised to see his academic advisor. 

If the student remains dissatisfied, 
his division director should be con- 
sulted. The student may arrange to 
see the dean of instruction if not 
content with the results of the 

previous meetings. 

After all these steps have been 
taken and the student's complaint 
remains unanswered, he is en- 
couraged to consult the office of the 
ombudsman in Room 205, Klump 
Academic Center. The ombudsman is 
authorized to investigate problems 
and maintains a direct line to the 
office of the college president. 

Students are advised to follow the 
above procedure when possible, but 
are encouraged to consult the om- 
budsman if assistance is needed in 
solving any complaint in policy, 
regulation or procedures problems or 
concerns in non-teaching matters as

it was defeated by Bucks County Com- 
munity College by the score of lO"? to 7'^. 
Low man for the team was Jeff Dugan with 
a round of 77. 

One of the problems the team has, ac- 
cording to Thomas E. Vargo. coordinator 
of physical education, is that the team's 
number-one-man has been unable to play 
because of a work commitment. 

The team lost its first match at homi

ABC special. 

In 1967. McNally was one of a party of 
men who discovered the remains of Castle 
Dracula in Transylvania, 

As a youth, McNally was a fan of 
vampire and monster movies. Since then 
he has published a book, "A Clutch of 
Vampires." and has won an award from 
the Count Dracula Society." 

Logue said "A Night of Horror" ties in 
with Dr Peter Dumanis' Masters of 
Horror course. "There will be plenty of 
blood and terror," Mr. Logue commented 

"Three hundred and one students attend 
WACC from Potter, Bradford, Tioga, and 
Sullivan counties," according to Dr. 
William H Feddersen. college president 
TTie college has employed Dwight 
Stewart Associates, along with Mansfield 
State College, to study the idea of making 
programs more accessible to these 
students. Questionnaires will -be sent out 
for students from these counties to get 
their opinions on commuting to off-campus 

Dr, Feddersen is also trying to organize a 

task force committee involving faculty, 
administrators and students. It will be a 
decision-making committee to examine 
the best process for involving people in 
major decisions and to see "what type 
structure best suits the needs." 

The president is forming a task force for 
energy conservation around the college. 
This would save costs on tuition and 
budget balancing.

Full moon doubles police troubles 

f-jiitor's !\ote: In the Sept. I.i itsue of 
SP(»TLIGHT we published a story contain- 
infi facts about the full moon. The follotv- 
iiifi story is an account of mhat aitualtv 
lakes place at the Williatnsport Police De- 
partment on eveninfi.s when the moon is full. 

By Leo A. Murray 
Staff Writer 

Last Tuesday's full moon beamed out its 
brilliant, glowing light and bounced its 
beams off tree leaves that were just star- 
ting to turn to their beautiful autumn 

This, indeed, was a picturesque setting. 
But the men of the Williamsport Police 
Department hardly had time to take a 
good look at this eye appealing gift from 
Mother Nature, 

The period of a full moon— or period of 
"gravitational pull", as it is called in the 
Police Squad Room at city building— is the 
busiest time of the month for the local po- 
lice department. 

"When the moon is full, our calls in- 
crease to almost double," said Police 
Dispatcher Richard Grove, 

Last Tuesday started out in a peculiar 
manner, according to Grove, He said the 
department investigated four burglaries 
between 4 and 7 p.m "It's highly unusual 
for burglaries to be committed during day- 
light hours," he added. 

As the night progressed. Grove's switch- 
Ixiiird lights began to blink as calls started 
lo pour in. Most of the calls were of a minor 
nature, but still worthy of being investi- 
gated by uniformed officers 

For the most part, malicious mischief 
complaints dominated the night's investi- 
gations The uniformed officers were 
called several times to various locations to 
investigate reports that kids were throw- 
ing corn and tomatoes at houses 

After investigating one such incident, 
two officers responded to a call in the area 
of Fifth Avenue, Upon their arrival, the 
officers reported a fight in progress 

After breaking up the fight, the officers 
took several of the youths who were in- 
volved to the Williamsport Hospital Emer- 
gency Room for treatment This incident 
also resulted in the arrest of one person 
The man was charged with three counts of 

disorderlv conduct and one count of public 

"One can tell the moon is full by the 
typesof calls that are starting to come in." 
said Grove as he turned his chair from the 
switchboard to one of the two typewriters 

Just as he started typing one of the many 
reports of the evening's activities, an offi- 
cer in a patrol car radioed in a license 
number for Grove to run through the com- 

In a matter of seconds, the CLEAN 
(Commonwealth Law Enforcement Assis- 
tance Network) computer provided Grove 
with the necessary data on the license. 
Grove then transmitted the information to 
the officer who requested it 

Just as Grove began working on his re- 
ports for the second time, the switchboard 
lit up again- This time, however, the caller 
said there was a man with a gun out in the

Dr. David S. Bushnell, director of the 
American Association of Community and 
Junior Colleges and the American 
Vocational Association Joint Study, spent 
two days in September at the college 

Dr. Bushnell studied the various ar- 
ticulation efforts used in community 
colleges across the nation 

WACC is one of 22 community colleges 
being studied across the nation in this 
program. The joint studv bv the American 
Association of Community and Junior 
Colleges and the American Vocational 
Association is being made with support 
from the United States Office of 

The study will document and promote 
cooperative working relationships among 
institutions offering postsecondary non- 
baccalaureate vocational and oc- 
cupational education at the local level. 

It is designed to concentrate on and 
report the findings from a nationwide 
survey to pinpoint those policies and ad- 
ministrative practices that facilitate or 
impede cooperation among community 

colleges, post-secondary area vocational 
schools, and other institutions and 

Dr Bushnell. during his two-day visit to 
the college, met with various ad- 
ministrative staff members as well as 
students and faculty of the college. 

Dr, William Homisak, special assistant 
to the president, stated that WACC was 
selected as one of the 22 community 
colleges in the nation's 1200 community 
college system because of its uniqueness 
and because of the wide variety of 
vocational and occupational education 
programs it offers. 

The findings and recommendations of 
the study will be disseminated through a

Plans are being made for renovation of the 
Bardo Gym, located on West Tliird Street 

Bardo Gym was used by both the Williams- 
port High School and WACC until 1972. 

Gym renovation proposed 

Staff Writer 

The Bardo Gymnasium was formerly 
part of the Williamsport High School. 
According to Dr William Homisak. 
special assistant to the president, the 
school was built in 1937 through a WPA 
(Works Progress Ayjministration) project 
under the Roosevelt administration. The 
WPA project is similar to the SETA 
program where unemployed people are 
hired by various government agencies. 

In 1965, Williamsport developed a 
Community College Formerly it was 
called Williamsport Technical Institute 
The Klump Academic Center and gym 
were used by both the Community College 
and the high school. The high school 
students used the gym and the KAC in the 
day while the college used it at night. 

In January 1971, the new Williamsport 
High School opened. WACC bought the 
gym, Klump Academic Center, Unit 6, and 
the three machine shops along 
Susquehanna Street for approximately 2.2 
million dollars. 

During the first years of WACC there 
were three deans. They were Lewis Bardo, 
dean of Applied Arts and Science ; Dr C 
Hershel Jones, dean of Liberal Arts and 
Science, and Dr, William Homisak, dean of 
Continued Education, Dean Bardo died of 
a heart attack in November 1967 James 
Bressler replaced him . Because of Bardo 's 
leadership and his contribution to 
education, they named the gym after him. 

There are no plans for a new gym , but 
according to Thomas E, Vargo, coor- 
dinator of physical education, the board of 
trustees have a "reconditioning plan." It 

includes new roof repairs, and a better 
heating and lighting system. According to 
Vargo, to build a gym would be too costly. 
So, instead of building a gym, money will 
be put into the old one. 

The Bardo Gymnasium is modemly 
equipped. Upstairs basketball courts and 
volleyball nets are available The weight 
room, downstairs, is equipped with a 
universal weight machine and boxing bag. 

The offices located in the gymnasium 
are: Harry C. Specht, coach of golf and 
tennis; Donna R. Miller, instructor of field 
hockey, and gym instructor; Thomas G 
Gray, coordinator of intramural sports; 
William Moore, basketball coach, and Max 
Wasson, wrestling coach In addition, 
there are two part-time gym teachers: 
Dave Housenecht for boys' gym and Sue 
Hetrick for girls' gym. 

'Beauty' contest participants judged 

By Vern Deatrich 
Staff Writer 

A beauty contest in Williamsport? 
Hardly, but Roosevelt Junior High School 
was the scene on Sept 17oftheMr, Central 
Pa. and Mr, Eastern U.S. competition- 

Unlike the Miss America contest the 
judges were concerned only with the 
muscles of the men and how well they 
could manipulate these muscles through 
certain moves. 

Also different from the Miss America 
Pageant is the panel of judges. It was 
made up of five men that resembled 
Sherman tanks, no women. Faith in these 
judges was tough to muster after one of the 
judges asked the MC in the beginning of 
the competition how to keep score. 

It was a typical Williamsport audience, 
sparse. The majority of the crowd was 
made up of the weaker sex ( I can say that 
with no guilt after watching these Goliaths 
run through their routines i who usually sat 
in pairs and huddled together as each 
contestant appeared on the stage. 

The competitors came out in groups of 
three. The first group was the short class. 

Cross country 1-1 

The college's cross country squad 
evened its record to 1-1 with a 24 to 31 win 
over Delaware Community College on 
Saturday. Oct. 1 at home. 

The meet's fastest time was by WACC's 
John D- Copenheaver with a 27 minute. 35 
second run. Second place was captured bv 
Chris Simonetti of WACC 

Coach Dave Housenecht is optimistic 
about the team stating that "we'll capture 
the conference title this year" 

The team lost its first meet by one point 
to Bucks County Community College- 

followed by the mediums and the tails The 
three men in each class came out together 
and were told to go through some basic 
poses. The names of these poses was not 
given, the MC simply told the men to 
"show your biceps," "show your calfs," 
"give us your back spread" and so on 

After going offstage the three would 
come back out one-by-one and go through 

man wins title 

Winners of the competition were. Ed 
Munn, 23. of Montoursville. Mr. Central 
Pennsylvania; and Ken Passariello. 29. of 
Orange, Conn.. Mr Eastern America 

Munn's measurements were: chest. 44'^ 
inches; arms. 16':, inches; waist. 31 in-

Faculty member 
is canoe champ 

Richard Rankinen. an instructor in 
Forest Technology is the new national 
champion in one-man canoe racing. 

Receiving a gold medal and a silver 
trophy from the United States Canoe 
Association, Rankinen was one of 62 men 
who competed in the "flat water'" canoe 
races in Owego. NY, in late August 

With a winning lime of one hour and 56 
minutes for a 16-mile race. Rankinen said 
that this was the second time he'd ever 
raced by himself. 

Competing in mostly two-man racing 
since 1%9, he and Norman Ludwig of 
Jersey Shore, took fifth place in that event

takes turo losses 

The women s field hockey team bowed to 
Montgomery County Community College 
11 to 1 for an opening day loss. The game,

scored by Robin Walker 

In the team's second game the National 
Junior College Champions. Bucks County 
Community College, defeated the Wildcats 
7 to 0, All goals were scored in the first 

Coach Donna R. Miller said that the 
reason for the team's slow start is that the

Soap bubbl es while it gets a washin g from staff

'. Soap should be put back in the washing 
t machine in my opinion . 
^ l^is take-off on soap operas is just as it 
was meant lo be: a mockery of the ever- 
famous daytime serials. 

The story unravels the complicated lives 
of two families : the lavishly rich Tates and 
the not-so prosperous Campbells. 
More than Tennis 
As one might expect, Mr. Tate is having 
' an affair with his secretary and the 
! "Missus" is doing more than playing 
J tennis with her instructor. Their children 
1 suffer from many ailments— one of which 
' is the adolescent's most dreaded enemy, a 
I ^'zil." 

J Grandpa Tate is suffering from a war- 
I time trauma which explains his utterly 
, ridiculous actions. 

One of the more polished characters in 
the show is Benson, the Tate's cook who is 
j)bviously trying to overdose the Mister 
with cholesterol. 

On the other side of the fence are the 
Campbells The Mister is impotent 
because he killed his wife's first husband. 
Their two sons (from her previous 
marriage, of course) are more than your 
run-of-the-mill sons. One is a "fruit" and 
the other is an active member of the 

Hit the Dirt! 
One of the few enlightening moments of 
the half-hour vigil was when Benson, 
standing behind shell-shocked Grandpa 
Tate, imitated the sound of a bomb falling 
from an airplane. Just as it's about to 
explode Grandpa dives underneath the 
dining room table— thus receiving a few, 
almost earned, chuckles.

Rafferty is just ordinary 

By Bob Mondell 
Staff Writer 

With the emphasis on non-violence this 
season, the networks have to rely heavily 
on family type shows. So it is little wonder 
that CBS fell back on an old staple— the 
medical show 

Last year there were no shows of this 
type on the air, except for reruns of 
Marcus Welby, M.D. Rafferty is CBS's 

attempt at reviving the hospital tear- 
jerker. But the show only proves to be just 
another glorified soap opera. 

Patrick McGoohan portrays Dr. Sidney 
Rafferty, a tough, no-nonsense physician 
who works at a large metropolitan 
hospital. His former occupation as an 


now. is also common of thi 
program . 

Just a rehash 

The story lines dealt with a promising 
athlete's refusal to donate a kidney to a 
dying girl and a mother who abandoned 
her children. It sounds like an episode of 
Love of Life. 

Actually. Rafferty did not move me one 
way or the other. It was just a rehash of 
past doctor shows. 

It seems that CBS, realizing their lack of 
unique programming, relied on a tried- 
and-true formula. But to me, Rafferty has 
been too tried already and doesn't seem to 
be too true— more like unreal. 

Army doctor gives him 

Really concerned 

He is more than just a doctor. However. 

he is genuinely concerned about every one 

of his patients and often becomes involved 

their personal lives. Sound familiar? 
I'm beginning to wonder if there is one 
gutsy set of scripts for shows of this type. It 
seems the only thing different is the actors 
who play the doctors. 

The particular show I watched involved 
two separate story lines in the same 
program, which, as everyone knows by

To Soap or not to Soap. 

Due to constant requests by pressure 
groups, the American Broadcasting 
Corporation (ABC) probably asked itself 
this question numerous times during the 
weeks preceding the scheduled broadcasts 
of the year's most talked about new show. 

Well, as you might already know. Soap 
bubbled into prime-time TV on Tuesday 
evenings and, in my opinion, made a 
splashing success. 

"Hie show, aired at 9:30. pokes fun at 
various situations which can be found 
almost everyday on shows such as All My 
Children. Ryan's Hope, and Days of Our 

I was elated to see that ABC aired the 
show rather than to knuckle under to the 
whims of pressure groups who think they 
speak for the entire population. ABC no

Lucan is not 

By David B. Bown 
Staff Writer 

Last season, ABC presented a made-for- 
TV movie called Lucan. The movie was an 
exceptional portrait of what a young man's 
life might be like had he spent his 
childhood living with wolves. 

ABC. like the other major networks, 
never likes to let a good thing drop, so they 
made a regular show out of Lucan . If what 
happened to the first show is any in- 
dication of what the rest of the season of 
Lucan will be like, maybe ABC should 
have dropped it- 

The original movie possessed all the 
qualities that an adventure story should 
have— violence, romance, intrigue, etc. 
The new show, which premiered Monday. 
Sept. 12, at 8 pm, unfortunately had only

It appears that with all the cries of too 
much violence on TV, ABC has tried to 
tone it down. Tone it down? They turned it 

An adventure story without a single 
bone-crushing punch or kick is very . , . 

The appeal of last season's movie wa6 
that the ferocity of a wolf was combined 
with the feelings of a wolf . . . how a wolf 
would act in a given situation. The new 
show had only the feelings or philosophy. 

So much for plot 

The advertisement for the season opener 
announced that Lucan, Kevin Brophy, 
would be protecting a beautiful gymnast, 
Stephanie Zimbalist. from kidnapers. As 
all heroes do, Lucan did Well, so much for 
the plot. 

Kevin Brophy delivered the philosophy 
of a wolf very convincingly. But how 
philosophical can a wolf get? 

If the show doesn't last, don't blame the 
actors. They only have so much to work

So I watched "The Amazing Spiderman" 
on Wednesday. Spiderman. One of those 
superhero things. Like Flash Gordon. 
Tarzan, Superman. Those kind. 

The Green Homet. Batman. Wonder 
Woman. Captain Marvel. Maybe even the 

The story goes like this: 

Teenage genius and freelance news 
photographer Peter Parker is down in the 
laboratory, doing experiments with— 
zap!— radiation. Along comes a spider and 
gets in the radioactive gook. It starts to 
glow. It crawls over to Parker and bites his 

Can do anything 

Later, walking down an alley, the young 
scientist is nearly hit by a car. (He must 
have been near Klump) Jumping onto the 
nearest wall he discovers he can do 
anything a spider can— and better. 

Soon after Parker comes up with his 
famous costume. He came up with the idea 
while bs-ing with his boss, J. Jonah 
Jameson, jaded editor and publisher of the 
Daily Bugle. Parker lays out what he 
thinks Spiderman is really like, costume, 
fantastic abilities, etc. 

In the next scene he appears— as 

Spiderman now— in a bizarre outfit h^ 

designed to match his fantasy. He stands 

in front of the mirror, looking smug. 

Beats 'em all 

Then: off to fight crime. In a series of 
murky and melodramatic episodes. 
Spiderman fights the leader of some un- 
named cult, an army of zombie people and 
those Chinese dudes with bamboo sticks 
and blow lorches. 

Eventually. our hero beats them all and 
still has time to rescue the proverbial 
pretty girl from a high dive off a high 

The end. 

Now, ask me how I liked the show. Well. 
I wanted to like it. I usually go for such 
trash. If it's good. If you know what I 
mean. Very arty, la-la. 

"Spiderman" used to be among my 
favorite reading materials, too, but I must 
have missed something when I was taking 
notes on the TV show. Either that or else 
the plot was full of holes. A lot of things 
didn't make sense. 

Was this a religious cult, or some kind of 
political social club?

Spiderman has 
split identity 

By Vera Deatrfch 
Staff Writer 

Once again a comic book character has , 
gone Hollywood and is trying to make it in 
television. This time it's Spiderman on 

Spiderman is really Petw Parker, a 
freelance photographer and sludent. who 
is understandably having an identity 
problem. Even though he is Spiderman. 
Parker detests the credit that the Web 
Slinger receives when he sends criminals 
up the river, 

Tliis emotional response is unique 
amongst the TV superheroes (aark Kent 
never got mad at Superman) and is really 
qute refreshing. 

During this summer of Star Wars 
escapism, the public is looking for more 
entertainment that is just that: en- 

No heavy thinking is required to un- 
derstand the plots of Spiderman . There are 
no fancy bionics, no saving the world from 
a mad South American dictator, and no 
Spiderwoman, boy, or dog. 

Spiderman is just concerned about 
stopping criminals from overtaking New 
York City and selling enough pictures to 
get through school. 

He is as close to being an average person 
as a superhero can get.

ABC's Carter Country couldn't get a 
Peter flash of one tooth or even a lopsided grin 

from it's eminent namesake. But still, he 
should be ecstatic after the season 
premiere. He wasn't in it! 

The show centers on the Carter Country 
police department. The flood-of attempted 
humor focuses on the department's black 
sergeant, a former New York cop. The 
flood waters rise over his head while 
Jimmy Carter's smilin' dry in the humor-

The situation is stuffed with possibilities.

The nation's funny bone is anesthetized 
by the overdoses of common TV 
stereotypes. Everyone — except the show's 
writers— know that when a Black appears 
in a sit-com, he'll make known his

melon, fried chicken and tap dancing.

would instigate a stronger school spirit, 
and bring the students together 

Also, by getting the school's name into 
the area newspapers, it might make the 
area residents aware that we are a college,

A football team would give the students 
a more competitive spirit, and in today's 
society that may be very important The

The college already has the football 
field. With just a little work, it would be 
ready to play on Also, by playing day 
games, as most colleges do. it would cost 
nothing for lighting. 

The only drawbacks would be buying the 
uniforms and hiring the coaches The cost 
could be made up in a couple of years by 
the profits gained from the gate receipts. 
The schedule wouldn't be too difficult to 
develop If we couldn't find other com- 
munity colleges wiUi football teams, we 
could always play the four year colleges' 
junior varsity teams These junior varsity 
teams are mostly first and second year 
students, which is what we here at WACC 
really are. By scheduling other area 
schools, the college could also save money 
on transportation

The first overnight trip of the college's 
Outing Qub was taken over a weekend in 
September on the "Black Forest Trail" 
through some of the most beautiful, and 
scenic vistas of the state 

This same path was traversed two 
centuries ago by Indians of the five 
nations. The Iroquois Confederacy, Later, 
it was used by French Colonels ' 

The excursion was designed with lose 
file formations, sufficient breaks for rest, 
refreshments and regrouping 

Steve L, Hoover, of Harrisburg. a 
forestry student, described the competent 
and congenial attitude of the group 

The route of the 17-mile walk began with 
the crossing, by foot bridge, over the 
waters of Pine Oeek. At a point about 15 
miles north of Waterville. the trail begins a 
gradual rise and levels off at 2.000 feet It 
was at this point the troop came upon four 
students from Lock Haven State College. 
The exchange was light and brief, with 
mutual good wishes. 

They then moved along this ridge, en- 
joying the mild weather and fresh air By 
late afternoon, the descent began. At the 
bottom of the gorge, a short distance from 
Pine Creek, camp was established. With 
plenty of light left, members explored the 
surrounding terrain. Cameras clicked 
Trees ana vegetation were identified 
There was also swimming and fishing A 
few members used the time to catch up on 
a little sleep. 

Cooking was in full swing by sundown 
Members constructed a fire place, and 
gathered wood. 

Darkness set in around 8:30; there was 
no moon and the heavy foliage confirmed 
the name, "Black Forest"

Being blind is 

no handicap 
for Joe 

By DaveBown 

and Candy Friends 

Staff Writers 

Most of us think nothing of walking to 
school, but to Joe it takes a little more 

Being blind and using a cane, Joe per- 
ceives things we take for granted. He uses 
landmarks, such as trees, alleys, and the 
smoothness of the sidewalk to tell where 
he's going. 

Joseph M. Bogwist is a first-year 
broadcasting student from Jeanesville. 
Blind at birth. Joe now is 23. 

Joe decided on broadcasting because he 
likes people, loves music, and he's also 
interested in electronics 

An accident on July 27, 1976 prevented 
Joe from coming to WACC last year 
Falling in a strip mine, he broke an arm 
and leg and was unable to walk until 
October of last year, 

Joe broke the same arm on June 27 this 
year while he was rollerskating. Joe says 
the 27th day of every month is bad luck for 

Attending a public school from grades 7 
through 12 was a help. Joe says, "By going 
to a public school, I was able to cope with 
the sighted world around me," he said 

In his spare time Joe plays guitar and 
operates a ham radio Currently, he is 
taking a correspondence course for his 
general license for radio from the Hadley 
School for the Blind in Illinois. In addition, 
Joe is interested in following the weather 
and he's a "big 'Star Trek" fan." 

To learn his way around, Joe takes a few 
times to travel the course. When he starts 
toward his destination, he can tell when 
he's made a wrong turn or passed it He 
just starts back to his "screw-up point" 
and re-adjusts himself. 

Asked if he ever considered getting a 
seeing eye dog, Joe replied, "never" 
However, he added, "I love animals." 

The most embarrassing, but humorous, 
situation happened to Joe when he was 
with Jack, a friend. They had just finished 
eating at a restaurant and walked outside. 

Brown Library 
displays art 

Paintings, prints and drawings are being 
exhibited by Elizabeth A. Yarosz. 
Williamsport artist, in October at the 
James V. Brown Library. 

The show was launched yesterday in the 
Community Room. Sponsored by Friends 
of the Library, it will continue through 
Thursday, Oct. 27. 

Miss Yarosz is a member of the 
Chautauqua, N.Y. Art League; Sarasota, 
Fia., Art Association; and the Bald Eagle 
Art League. 

She describes her technique as follows: 
"My images are straightforward render- 
ings of objects or figures. They are com- 
mon recognizable objects and settings. My 
thoughts are an investigation and ques- 
tioning of the power of an individual thing 
taken out of context They are separate, 
fragment realities depicted in unison 

There will be 28 titles in tlw exhibit in- 
cluding oils, acrylic, watercolor, linocuts, 
charcoal, drawings and lifhnerapliic 

Not being able to find a garbage can, they 
held onto their soda cans. While Jack 
visited "the plumber," Joe held onto the 
cans. Someone came up and Joe felt 
weight on the can. Then he heard a noise 
and realized what the person had left him 
When Jack returned. Joe being con- 
siderably embarrassed, said. "We just got 
a donation." 

Most of Joe's instructors have l>een 
helping him on a one-to-one basis, either in 
testing or with his homework. 

Miss Florence M Markley, his English 
composition teacher, has been using tape 
recordings to aid Joe. She records the 
assignments on cassettes and Joe types 
the work When Miss Markley receives the 
homework , she corrects it on the 
assignment and also records the correc- 
tions on another tape. 

After Miss Markley has corrected the 
paper, she gives it to Mrs, Bonnie R. 
Taylor, Joe's typing instructor, who 
corrects it again for typing class. 

"You can't help but respect him because 
he is most pleasant, most cooperative." 
said Miss Markley 

She says she asks herself, "Would I have 
the guts to do that? Wow, I don't know" 

Teaching him, she says, "is a challenge, 
but it's pleasant because his attitude is so 

G, Robert Kissell, his government 
teacher, said the only "special treatment" 
Joe is receiving from him is a one-to-one 
testing, with the test eiven orally. 

Kissell said Joe "wants to be as in- 
dependent an mdividual as he possibly can 

Kissel said he and other students admire 
Joe for "his tenacity for being in school." 

Irving "Bud" Berndf, Joe's advisor and 
broadcasting instructor, says Joe does the 
same things other broadcasting students 
do "only differently" 

But as far as any "special treatment," 
Berndt says, "I stand ready to help, but I 
want them (handicapped students) to have 
a normal school life"

Five years ago. the United Way Agency 
launched Help Yourself Incorporated, a 24- 
hour telephone Mne for people with drug- 
related problems 

Until that time, the Williamsport area 
had no agency to deal with such problems, 
according to Debbie A Sandmeyer, the 
agency's executive director 

For "the past three or four years" Help 
Yourself has also operated as an in- 
formation and referral service, said Miss 

The agency's professionally trained 
volunteers can now provide information 
about other agencies, such as the phone 
number, cost and hours they are open. 

In addition, callers can obtain in- 
formation about a specific problem : 
financial, medical, housing, drug and 
alcohol abuse, rape, family conflicts and 

The hotline also services people who just 
need a listening ear. Anyone may call- 
students, veterans, the handicapped, 
senior citizens— people from all walks of 

According to Miss Sandmeyer. the 
hotline volunteers don't ask for a caller's 
name. "The information is handled with 
total confidentiality." she said. 

Sometimes, during "long talks," she 
added, a staff person may ask for a first 
name, to avoid calling someone "hey Pamphlets are available

A volunteer can begin in-service training 
any time, but must attend the next 
scheduled seminar. 

Before beginning actual training, 
volunteers are "screened" by Help 
Yourself staff members. They must also 
fill out an application. 

Volunteers cannot be going through 
therapy themselves, said Miss Sand- 
meyer - 

There is also a required time com- 
mitment. Volunteers must work at least 12 
hours each month, usually one three-hour 
night each week- This includes one 
weekend shift every month. 

Volunteer-trainees begin in-service 
working with a staff person. Training 
involves learning the file system, -ob-

"When trainees feel they are ready," 
said Miss Sandmeyer, "they are voted in 
as active volunteers and work by them- 

All staff persons at Help Yourself are 
volunteers, with the exception of the 
executive director. Meetings are held once 
every month. "The volunteers are the 
policy-making group," said Miss Sand- 
meyer . 

Help Yourself handles about 40 to 45 
calls each week. 

An average of two calls are actual

Compensation for vict 

When Hammurabi conceived his code— 1775 BC— he included 
provisions for compensating victims of wrong doings. The Franks had 
a comparable system of retribution 
; Sagaciously, Pennsylvania legislators activated a Crime Victim's 

; Compensation Board with the same basic idea on March 28, 1977 
'. Pennsylvania is not the first slate to take such measures. 

' California and New York began in 1967. They were followed by Hawaii, 
Maryland and Massachusetts. 

They all recognized the responsibility of the state to adequately 
protect its citizens. And, if through no fault of his own, a citizen 
becomes a victim of a violent crime the state is responsible— at least to 
the degree of lessening the hardship 

Gov. Milton J. Shapp, in a pamphlet, wrote, "The criminal offense 
" is tragic enough. Our citizens should not need to bear all the costs of 
5 medical treatment and lost earnings incurred through no fault of their 
" own." 

. The board grants awards to innocent victims of violent crimes in 

' Pennsylvania provided: 

5 The crime occurred on or after Oct. 29, 1976: the incident was 

g reported within 72 hours to the proper law enforcement agencies: the 

' claim is filed within one year from the date of incident ; the victim had 

unreimbursable medical expenses or unreimbursable loss of income 

or support for at least two weeks, and the combined reimbursable 

expenses exceed $100. 

The crime must be unprovoked But interveners acting to prevent 
the commission of crime or to assist in the apprehension of suspected 
criminals are eligible for compensation. 

The house of representatives approved federal aid on Sept. 30 for 
states to help with the cost of the compensation programs. 

Rep. Allen E. Ertel, 17th Congressional district, who co-sponsored 
the bill said, "The victim of an armed robbery who is shot and 
paralyzed can have his future destroyed. A family's security can also 
be wiped out if the breadwinner is murdered." 

He continued, "In cases like these, we need adequate state and 
federal funds to help victims overcome such tragedies." 

Unprovoked violence is a part of man's nature. Compensating 
victims is not the best possible solution But until man finds the elusive 
answers to the sources of violence, the victims need not suffer the 
financial burden as heavily as the violent act itself.

The major problem, says Specht, is that 
the team does not have one or two "out-

As treasurer, Williams' main respon- 
sibility will be to promote the state associ- 
ation and to set a good example for 
prospective and current members. 

He will preside over seven counties: 
Clinton, Lycoming, Luzerne. Union. Mon- 
tour. Sullivan, and Columbia—where live 
part of the 13.092 state members. 

The FFA is a vocational agricultural 
organization characterized by projects of 
all kinds. The most popular projects, 
Williams said, are establishing dairy 
herds, beef finishing, raising various field 
crops, vegetable farming, and gardening. 

Ornamental horticulture and forestry 
are also included in the list because— al- 
though all projects pertain to agriculture — 
they are all on an individual basis. 

The treasurer's personal project is 
raising 225 acres of alfalfa hay. tending 25 
head of beef cattle, and harvesting five 
acres of field corn for his cattle. He em- 
ploys six or seven part-time workers each

Welcome to Fall Weekend 

In no time at all, mid-term examinations will be on our desks. 

„ Keeping this in mind, then, how should one go about surpressing 

S> those all too frequent urges to party and just have plain fun? 

1 One good way to fight back these impulses is to get the partying 
— feelings out of one's system all at one time. 

2 The Student Government Association will provide an ideal outlet 
5 for these feelings this weekend when it stages its annual Fall Weekend, 

The SGA has put together a variety of activities for this year's 
event, which will get underway FYiday evening. 

Students are reminded that Fall weekend is conducted fo. 
students. It is the money that students have paid in the form of an 
"activity fee" which allows the SGA to hold special events of this 
^ nature. 

X All too frequently, WACC is referred to as 'not a weekend cani- 

Q pus." Although— in most instances— this is true, students should take 

f^ the time to participate in programs which have been designed with 

them in mipd. 
OD The SGA officers and the student senators have undoubtedly 

« exerted much of their time in preparing for the event. A good turn out 

P by the student body would give them an indication that they are doing a 

good job of planning special activities. After all, we elected them to 
perform these duties. 

Energy conservation noted 

Few people will ever forget the linergy Crisis" of the 1970's. As a 
matter of fact, Americans can still feel the impact of sky rocketing oil 
prices, which have indeed taken their toll— physically and financially. 

In the physical sense, we suffer some discomfort when we turn 
back our thermostats in order to conserve valuable fuel. 

There is little to be said about the financial aspects of the crisis. Oil 
and gas prices have nearly tripled since the early part of 1970. And just 
alwut every home owner feels the monetary sting. 

It is highly unlikely that the price of oil and gas will decrease m the 
near future. So it's a good idea for us to start being more conservative 
with these fuels— which, in addition to being expensive— are growing 
increasingly scarce. 

A good place for us to start conserving energy is right here on 

On any given day, one can travel through the halls of any campus 
building and find lights left on in places where lights are not 
necessarily needed. 

This waste of precious fuel should not be tolerated by any member 
of the student body, faculty, administration, or staff. 

For conservation purposes, if you are walking through the halls of 
iny campus building, and spot a light on where it's not needed, turn it 

The savings may not be much . . . But it's a step in the right

Student Government hears 
guest speakers at meeting 

By Michelle I. Klein 
Staff Writer 

A record attendance of students listened 
to two guest speakers at the Student 
Government Association (SGAi meeting 
last Tuesday afternoon 

Dr. William H Fedderson. college 
president , addressed an audience of neartv 
30 people, including SGA officers and 

Dr Fedderson outlined "Phase I" of the 
redevelopment program for the college 
This phase will cost approximatelv $13 
million New buildings will be built and 
some existing ones will be renovated 

Firearms ban 
on federal land 

Hunting with firearms is not tolerated on 
WACC'S Earth Science grounds, Route 15. 
near AUenwood, or on the land near the 
Susquehanna River where heavy con- 
struction equipment is used, the Security 
Office warns. 

As a further warning. Chief Security 
Officer Lawrence P Smeak added. "It is 
not permissible under federal law to hunt 
within the vicinity of a federal prison " 

Students should also be aware, he said, 
that the AUenwood prison complex is 
patrolled regularly by prison guards 

The confiscation nf any firearms, in the 
possession of hunters, will result in the 
information being turned over to The 
Federal Bureau of Investigation for 
federal proseculion. the officer noted 

If the college can get the 
financial backing. Dr. Fedderson said, 
construction should begin in 1978 Com- 
pletion of this first phase should be within 
three years, added Dr Fedderson 

A "Phase II" proposal will follow, 
raising the total cost for redevelopment lo 
approximately $20 million 

Assistant Dean David M Heinev, 
discussed a proposed insurance plan to the 
audience. This plan could make accident 
ipulsary at $3.50 per student 

This policy covers the student for anv 
accident at any time, up to $2,000 in 
hospital costs. According to Heinev. each 
student will have 24-hour coverage 
whether he is on or f»ff (he campus 

This plan compared lo the present op 
lional one, is nearly $3.5 cheaper. There is 
one drawback— It will not he optional If 
Ihe proposal is passed, students must take 
out the insurance 

Heiney plans to draw up a paper for 
ciculation describing this and other op- 
tions available He requests a feedback 

Another item included in the meeting's 
agenda was the election of a chairman for 
the spring election board Unopposed 
Ronnie M Shaffer, a general studies 
student, was unanimouslv voted as 
chairman. Her duties will include the 
control over and operation of the election

Horticulture meeting WACC Radio offers 
results in party plans AP wire service 

By Chuck Tooley 
Staff Writer 

Issues of smoking and drinking in the 
Klump auditorium during special events, 
particularly Monday night movies, are 
becoming a major concern, reports the 
Security Office 

Trying to prevent "a possible tragedy," 
Chief Security Officer Lawrence P Smeak 
asks in the interest and safety of all 
students: "That smoking be done on the 
outside during intermissions of auditorium 
activities." The plea was made in hopes of 
preventing the possibility of fire and panic, 
he said. 

TTie subject of alcoholic beverages on 
campus is another major concern to the 

security office. 

According to Smeak, "It is a violation of 
the college's alcoholic regulations to have 
alcoholic beverages on college property" 

The horticulture club held its weekly 
meetmg last Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. and 
made plans for their Halloween Party 

Ronald A. Burger, president of the club 
said Cathy L. Vogel was elected com- 
mittee chairman to plan for the party It 
will be held Oct. 27 at 7:30 pr

It welcomes any college group or 
organization to publicize their events on 
the radio, according to Irving (Bud) 

Also, the AP wire service is available tc 
any student or faculty member to use. It is 
operating every weekday and all are

Haley's success 
did not create 
tourism boost 

By The Associated Press 

(Henning, Tenn.) Alex Haley hasn't 
done for Henning. Tenn. what Jimmy 
Carter has done for Plains, Ga. 

The 605 Henning residents had hoped the 
success of native son Haley and his 
Pulitzer Prize-winning book, "Roots," 
would bring a great tourist business 

Henning's Mayor Billy "Poc" Brandon 
says, "Haley gave us a boost, but not what 
we anticipated." 

Haley's last visit to Henning was in May 
as part of a three-day state-wide 
celebration honoring him. The small town 
prepared for 10,000 visitors, only about 
1,500 came. 

Mayor Brandon says, "There is as much 
curiosity about our other famous resident, 
Jim Hickman, as there is about Haley '' 

Hickman is a local farmer who once 
played baseball with the Saint Louis 
Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs. 

Students get 
job training 

By Scott Gitchell 
Staff Writer 

Cooperative Education which has beer 
in effect since January 1976. offers 
students the opportunity to work in the 
business world. Students can benefit from 
on-the-job training while getting full 
college credit. 

The program has proven successful, 
according to William C. Bradshaw. direc- 
tor of post secondary cooperative 
education at the college, 

Bradshaw stated. "I really feel the first 
semester we accomplished more than I 
hoped." He hopes to do even better next 
semester, he added. 

Co-op students get paid for their on-the- 
job training- According to Bradshaw. •'The 
average salary is around three dollars an 

Students in Co-op spend part of their 
time in the classroom and part on the job. 

Bradshaw says it is possible for a stu- 
dent to obtain a one semester internship, 
although "not defined strictly as *co-op". 
This is a paid internship. Therefore, it's 
similar to, but not the same as cooperative

Tot Watch is 
real learning 

By Elaine Helm 
suit Writer 

A real learning experience is happening 
on the first floor of the Klump Academic 

That may not seem unusual, as this is an 
educational institution What is a bit 
unusual is that the ages of those involved 
are between two and a half and five years. 

These pre-schoolers are part of the 
college's Tot Watch service. While parents 
are furthering their education, the 
children are learning some valuable 
lessons themselves. 

The Tot Watch supervisor, Mrs Mary 
Bardo, gets the children involved in 
supervised play which "hopefully provides 
some educational experience." Games 
with shapes, colors and the alphabet are 
an example of the fun and learning 
provided by Tot Watch 

There is a $5 registration fee for the 
service and a 5(^<:ent-an^lou^ charge for 
each child. 

Twenty children are now registered in 
the program. Mrs. Bardo stated usually 
eight to 12 children are being supervised at 
one time, depending on the amount of help 

Two work study students, Karen Hidlay 
and Claudia Seller, assist Mrs, Bardo with 
the youngsters. 

Rash of thefts 
real "hassle" 

Four thefts, occurring on WACC's 
campus, ranging from' $4 to $175. have 
been reported, according to Chief Security 
Officer Lawrence P. Smeak, 

Books and wallets have fallen "easy 
prey" when the items were left openly 
unattended "invited to be taken," Smeak 
said. Tlie security officer also added that, 
"It's a hassle to replace missing items, 
and to stop payments on checks and credit 

Any thefts of personal property on col- 
lege grounds should be reported to the 
Security Office, Room 108. Klump

IThe king is gone, but 
McDowell remembers 

Staff Writrr 

It is not often that a person can attract 
t^ the hearts of Ihe people enouph In have 
S them mourn for days at his or her death 
ge Late President John F Kennedy did it 
^ So did Martin Luther Kinp 
■5 On Aug Ifi, 1977. Klvis Aaron Presley 
O 42. died, and his death shocked the world 
as few have 

A few weeks later, a younfi singer 

released a record (hat sold almost as fast 

as it was produced Ronnie McDowell, 

known for his impersonation of Klvis. 

released a single record five weeks ago 

that has already sold over a million copies 

H McDowells song. "The King is (ione." 

K has to be one of the best tributes ever 

2 bestowed upon a man 

«J The song, which starts with a short 

g narration, explains how McDowell grew 

g^ up idolizing Elvis and hoping that .someday 





someone would come up tn him after a 
performance and say. "You know \nii 
sound just like Klvis " 

Once McDowell begins singing, he ex- 
plains how a man starts out poor and rises 
higher and higher to fame, Finally, the 
world declares him king 

Never once throughout the singing does 
McDowell refer to Elvis by name, nor does 
be have to 

One of the touching parts of the song is 
when McDowell sings. "The king is gone, 
but long live his name " 

Making the record even more appealing 
is the style it is sung in With McDowell's 
voice sounding just like Klvis'. and the 
background group performing like Ihe 
king's, it sounds like an Klvis original 

McDowell also ends the record with a 
short narration- In almost a whisper be 
says, "Goodbye. Elvis, we'll miss you " 

I couldn't agree more.

Napoleon Bonaparte, who once formed 
an empire for France, died— by all ac- 
counts— 156 years ago But on Ihe island of 
Corsica, where he was born, Napoleon still 
lives- The islanders, proud people, will not 
accept the news of his death 

For more than half a century, (he vn(ers 
of Ihe Corsican town of Ajaccio have 
chosen to be governed by Ihe Bonapartist 
Party. Since 1924, the Bnnapartists have 
controlled city hall— wi(h only two in- 
terruptions. One lasted for two vears. from 
1945 to 1947, at the end of World War Two. 
when issues were confused. The other was 
a somewhat longer period, from 1953 to 
I 1959. 

The leader of the Bonapartist Party. 
Antoine Marcangeli. says that in French 
national elections, the party controls RO 
percent of the electorate The partv 
generally follows the conservative-center 
line of French President Valery Giscard 
D'Estaing. But on local issues it's more 
independent, more pro-Napoleon 
Big dates for the year 

The big dates of Ihe year for the 
Bonapartists on Corsica are August 15. Ihe 
day Napoleon was born in 1769. and May 
fifth, when he died in exile on the island of 
St Helena in 1821 

On Napoleon's birthday. Ihe Bnnapar- 
tists gather and listen to speeches on 
Napoleonic glory The chief speaker, of 
course, is AnIoine Marcangeli. who passes 
for an expert on Napoleon 

He says he's read a lot of books about the 
famous emperor. He feels that Napoleon's 
genius reflected the genius of Ihe Cor- 
sican. as well as Ihe French people

What the Bonapartists do want is con-

giving it the kind of pro-government ad- 
ministration it has been accustomed lo. 
The city has a population of 55.000. The 
party has only about 5.000 card-carrying 
members But it commands broad sym- 
pathy because its candidates are the ones 
best known The party members, of 
course, have wives and families and the 
Bonapartist sympathies are strong 

Members of the party foreswear any 
other office, such as the National 
Assembly in Paris or regional assemblies. 
They feel their party has a reason In exist

Somebody ought to sit the Los Angeles 
Dodgers down and explain to them that 
they don't stand a chance in this World 
Series. The way they're playing you would 
think that they believe they actually can 
beat the New York Yankees in this fall 

How can a team like the Dodgers, with 
players that don't argue among them- 
selves, get along great with their mana- 
ger, are void of any free agents, even 
dream of beating a team like the Yankees, 
ajteam torn by turmoil and money 

The Bronx Bombers have a right fielder 
who doesn't get along with the manager 

and doesn't talk to the catcher, three pit- 
chers that the owners spent a huge sum of 
money on in the free agent draft (all three 
missed games this year with sore arms) a 
center fielder that walks as if he needs 
crutches, and a relief pitcher that always 
has a mouth full. 

To the great names of the past, "Iron 
Horse" Lou Gerhig, "Jolting" Joe 
DeMaggio, Billy "The Kid" Martin, and 
the "King of Swat" Babe Ruth, the 1977 
Yankees will add their own. Don "My Arm

win. Alas, if only they could cause some 

problem they'd be known nation wide. 

One must wonder whether or not the 
Yankees will have the same personnel 
next season, or will they get rid of the 
players they have now and go out and buy 
the National League All-Stars. 

By the time this appears in print, the 
series might ah-eady be over. If so, I'm 
sure the "nice guys" Dodgers would have

Phi Beta Lambda plans to snag first 
prize for a float at the South Williamsport 
Mummers' Parade for the third year in a 
row. The parade begins at 7:30 tonight. 

"It's the best one we've had so far." 
Sally Spaeth, chairman of the float 
committee, said with a grin 

The fraternity won $100 two years ago 
with its first place "Mickey Mouse Qub 
House" entry, and $36 last year for first 
place with its "Great Pumpkin Patch" 

The float travels to a fantasy world of 
witches and sorcery with its "Wizard of 
Oz" theme, Dorothy's house, the witch's 
castle, the forest, and the yellow brick 
road are featured on a 40 by 8 foot tractor 
trailer bed. 

Committee members will appear on the 
float as characters from the story 

Miss Spaeth estimates that over 100 
hours of work went into the planning and 
construction of the project, which began in 
the boiler room at the Bardo Gym. 

After a few weeks of work on the float, 
committee members moved it to Craft- 
masters Inc 

The space provided for their use was 
donated by Marvin Staiman and Ray P, 
Smith Jr. 

The float was built with materials 
twught by the fraternity with funds they 
had set aside. The Hammermill Paper 
Company of Lock Haven helped by 
donating several rolls of paper. 

The Cerquozzi Trucking Company has 
supplied a truck and bed for the float-

year's float down Main Street. 

Committee members are Scott R. 
Stephens, of Williamsport; LuAnn A.

Fall Weekend very successful (LBUUEBS 

Fall Weekend was a success The weekend is only a few days 
behind us now, and there are whispers in the hallways expressing 
hopes that when the Student Government Association sets its sights on 
Spring Weekend, it, too, can be as successful. 

The laughs dished out at Friday evening's movie, "Young 
Frankenstein," were just what the doctor ordered in order to move one 
into the mood to trek over to the American Legion Post and dance his 
socks off to the music of "Ralph " 

Saturday's gridiron clash between the faculty and the student body 
was not televised on the "Wide World of Sports," but it accomplished 
its goal— good, clean, down to earth fun. 

The last touchdown was followed by a brief rest, and then it was 
time for the curtain to go up for "The Stanky Brown Group" concert. 
Students, who were starting to feel drowsy from the effects of par- 
ticipating in so many activities in a short amount of time, relaxed and 
drifted off into the sounds of rock music. 

After the concert, it was time to move over to the Lair for a side- 
splitting Marx Brothers Film Festival 

Sunday's road rally and picnic concluded this most enjoyable 

Years from now, when the students who participated in the ac- 
tivities reminisce about their college days, it's a safe bet that "Fall

I recently had Ihe opportunity to return 
lo the hills and valleys of my childhood, 
which in those days were fairly untouched 
by man I looked forward, with great zeal, 
for the chance to once again visit these 
places and take trips "down memory 

To my exasperation I discovered that 
my "paradise" had been invaded by the 
dirtiest animal on this Earth— the lit- 
terbug ! 

\ returned (o the deep woods stream thai 
had once whispered great secrets of nature 
and life to me The stream that had 
quenched my thirst after long hikes 
relaxed my tired body when I was troubled 
and smelled as fresh as just baked bread 

This same stream I now found dammed 
up and stagnant from the household 
garbage someone had dumped there over 
a period of months 

1 walked down the dirt road that is lined 
with maple trees of brilliant colors this 
time of year, where once I shuffled 
through the fallen leaves and breathed in , 
the distinct smell of autumn Now. all that 
is distracted from by the piles of beer and 
soda cans lining the roadway. 

Finally I came to the place where my 
childhood home stands, but in no way 
reflects the people who once occupied it 
years ago Where there was once weeping 
willows, walnut trees, lilacs, green grass 
and butterflies, there is now a poorly kept 
"shack" and a graveyard for automobiles 
and household appliances A perfect en- 
vironment for the many rats I saw, but 
certainly not for the family who lives 

I unashamedly cried. Then anger set in

To Art Zadina: After reading your ar- 
ticle. "Kiss Off," in the Oct 4 edition of 
SPOTLIGHT. I could do nothing but laugh 
I wouldn't care if you didn't like Kiss, 
wrote about it, and got the facts straight. 
But when you don't get the facts right, then 
someone should teil the misinformed 
readers what Kiss is really like. So here it 

You imply that Kiss promotes 
"alcoholism, sadism, masochism, and 
devil worship." I have followed Kiss from 
their beginning and, maybe to your sur- 
prise, I am not an alcoholic, an s&m 
person, nor do I worship the devil 

As for Gene Simmons being inspired in 
the John, there is only one way you would 
know where he writes from, and that is by 
being there. And I doubt if you were there. 

Simmons is not lead vocalist. Paul 
Stanley is. 

For Gene to spit fire 20 feet takes years 
of practice. This practice has paid off- 
Simmons has been ranked third in the 
world for fire-breathing. 

Tliere is much more to the Kiss story but 
if you don't care about the facts. I won't 
tell them to you. 

Well, that's all I have to say, except you 
are invited to the Spectrum in 
Philadelphia on Dec. 22, 1977. The tickets 

have you ever stopped to think that you 

may be ruining someone's paradise too" 

Becoming a litlerbug is easy. It begin: 

with tossing things out car windows in

Yes, that's right. As Kiss has done in the 
past, they will give all the Christmas 
concert money to the handicapped. 

I think that's kind of nice for devil

According to a memo from Chester D. 
Schuman. director of admissions and 
records, the records office must be notified 
as soon as possible regarding all changes 
in veterans' schedules 

Veterans' benefits are based upon 
credits or clock hours, depending upon the 
course enrolled in Therefore, if the credit 
or clock hour load changes, the records 
office is legally obligated to notifv the

Tuesday evening It is the third year in a

it was not an easy victory 

"The towers fell over." Miss Spaeth 
said. This was before the parade started 
and the float was quickly repaired, but 
later encounters with low-hanging tree 
branches created similar problems during 
the parade, she said.

Self-pace is basis of program 

By Chuck Tooley 
Staff Writer 

A new, individualized instructional program in the 
electrical division has had a successful christening 
with students, resulting in a zero percent attrition rate, 
according to Donald O, Yoiuig Sr.. division director- 

The new program . conducted in Unit 3, iR currently 
available only to college students 

This curriculum is based on the substance nf self 
pace mastery and learning with individual attention 
given to each student This replaces crowded lectures 
and improper visual demonstrations. According to 
instructor John J- Mitchell, the course was designed 
for "motivated students on the spectrum who were 
bored to tears." 

Though the lab's equipment was installed in the 
summer of 1977 by the electronic division's students 
and instructors, the basis of the project began nearly 
two years ago 

The program developed when a federal grant, 
written up by electronics instructor Robert W StuU for 
$48,000, was approved for the 1976-77 school year 
Took tour 

Young and Stull then toured various technical 
colleges in Georgia where the self-pace mastery and 
learning technique is a formality- 
Two schools in Georgia— Lanier Tech and Pickens 
Area Vo-Tech School— served as a guide to the 
program's plans- 

"We saw a similar program with these points." 
said Young about the curriculum being offered to 
Georgia students. He added that the form of individual 
instruction used there enables anybody to walk off the 
streets and take the course simpiy because Georgia's 
technical schools and community colleges have no 
tuition fees 

Mitchell said that : 

' WACC has a strict limit 

allotted to course time, students must move at a 
consistent pace to get their assignments done 
A student evaluates 

Therefore, students progress at their own rates 
within given time allotments by working their lessons 
and verifying what theu -have learned with their nwn 
separate equipment When a student has developed lh<- 
skill to accomplish the lesson, he must take a seif-tcsi 
and evaluate it himself. 

After following this procedure, the student is given 
an evaluation by the instructor and continues on to the 
next unit. However, if it is necessary to repeat the 
material, he does so without holding his colleagues 

Enabling instructors the freedom to diagnose 
individual problems is a further advantage directly 
attributed to the one-to-one learning process. Mitchell 
said that if a student is "not motivated and is there just 
to take up space, he won't make it " 
Theory has drawbacks 

The theory of individual instruction does have 
drawbacks that are encountered in an article entitled 
"Installing An Individualized Learning System " 
Various setbacks can result when students find it 
difficult to adjust to the new scope Large groups could 
possibly suffer from the "depersonalized" atmosphere 
and students might abuse their freedom 

Regardless, the individualized instruction seems 
to be grasping the interests of the students "The new 
program has so inspired the students, that there has 
been no attrition within the curriculum." said Young 

The course, proving successful so far, has 
prompted the plans for the same procedure to be of- 
fered in Electric Motor Control next year 

Deadline today 
for Larry Flynt 

Today is the deadline set by Rep. Allen 
E, Ertel for Larry Flynt. publisher of 
Hustler magazine, to come up with a 
detailed proposal to finance a study of 
child abuse. 

AccocfUaK tfl 91 news release from . 
I'nnercssman Eriels office. Err,^l o-m 'a 
letter to Flynt asking him to follow up a 
promise to finance a study relating to child 
pornography and child abuse 

In his letter. Ertel said, "You made an 
offer to the House Judiciary Subcommittee 
on Crime concerning child abuse, 1 asked 
for details. You now say your proposal will 
take a 'few weeks' to complete. This delay 
tends to verify the opinion that you were 
after headhnes rather than a federally- 
backed study of child abuse , . , it seems 
apparent that your offer was not made in 
good faith "

Staff Writer 

Student Government Association (SGAl 
officers decided at last Tuesday's meeting 
to accept an invitation to join the Pennsyl- 
vania Community College Student Associ- 
ation (PCCSA) 

This acceptance, according to Ernest L. 
Airgood, SGA president, requires the pay- 
ment of $500 from the SGA budget. 

A brief description of the organization 
was given by Airgood. 

"They (PCCSA) are trying to gel back 
on their feel again. " Airgood said the 
organization has tried to gel started in 
previous years but has failed The money 
will not be returned if the organization 
doesn'l make it. Airgood said 

A vote was not officially taken because 
the SGA constitution does not require a 
vole on the matter, according to Airgood 

In other matters. Frank J Bowes, direc- 

tor of student activities and placement 
congratulated the SGA on the success of 
Fall Weekend. 

"I don't know of any Student Govern- 
ment which has done so much, so well," he 
said, adding : "Now we can look forward to 
a bigger and better Spring Weekend " 
Bowes' statements brought a round of 

In accordance with this, Clare A Noldy, 
SGA treasurer said, $6,547 was spent on 
Fall Weekend activities. The profit for the 
weekend has not been calculated, said 
Miss Noldy, because all money and 
remaining tickets have not yet been turned 

This leaves the SGA budget at $13,757.

Blood needed 

No one actually realizes how important blood is. It is one of those 
S things that is taken for granted— until it is needed. 
"*. No artificial substance in the world can replace blood, 

"f This poses many problems Specifically, the question arises: 

i Where will it come from when supplies are low? 
"2 Adding to the complexity and futility of the situation is the fact that 

there is never enough blood in supply to help those who must have it. 
This is where the Bloodmobile comes in. The Bloodmobile is an 

excellent means of getting the public involved in the effort to acquire 

an ample abundance of blood 

A Red Cross spokesman illustrated the problem by saying there is 
t. a critical need for blood at this time Especially after such disasters as 
X the recent Johnstown flood, the local blood bank is alarmingly low 
2 The college is making a tremendous effort to help the Red Cross by 

H hosting the two-day Bloodmobile Much thanks should be given to the 

administration for concern in the matter 

^ A special thanks should also be handed to George A. Elias, a 

01 welding instructor, who has served as the college's Bloodmobile 
P chairman for nine years 

It only takes a few minutes and a compassionate heart to donate 
your services. If you are having a hard time trying to decide whether 
to give blood or not. here's something to think about 

Some day a member of your family may be desperately in need of 
this priceless fluid for some reason Wouldn't it make you feel great to • 
know your blood was helping keep someone you love alive'' 

There is still plenty of lime (o donate your blood. So in your spare 
time, today or tomorrow, take a walk across the street to the gym and 
donate a pint of blood. After doing so. you can truly say you care about 
your fellow man. 

Unit 6 in need 
of new name 

Unit Six is in dire need of our help. It needs our help to pull it out of 
an identity problem which has been plaguing it for some time. 

The problem developed some time back when all the other 
buildings on campus were stripped of their "unit numbers" and given 
proper names. 

Ever since then. Unit Six has carried two titles. Some people 
prefer the numerical name, while others refer to it as the 
"Administration Building." 

Truly it is not the "Administration Building." 

How could it be'' As it stands now, it houses the Graphic Arts 
Department, the Broadcasting Department, the Drafting Department 
and others. It also houses some administration offices. 

Surely one can see that a problem does exist. But what can we do 
about it? 

To help Unit Six overcome this identity problem, Dr William H. 
Feddersen, president of the college, proposed to let the student body 
submit names to be considered for the new title. 

Dr Feddersen agrees the building deserves a more appropriate 
name. But he said it is "definitely" not the Administration Building 
He noted that the college administration is scattered here and there 
around the campus. 

Therefore, it is easy to see that if Unit Six is to overcome this 
identity problem it is up to the student body to suggest names for 

Students who wish to submit a name for consideration may do so 
by dropping it off at the SPOTLIGHT office in the Klump Academic

Dear Editor: 

Recently, on my way to the Automotive 
: Library I saw a blind student groping his 
way. He was near the Bardo Gym and kept 
walking back and forth with the aid of his 
white cane Since many students were 
coming from or going to class, I stopped to 
see if any students would offer to assist 
him, but to my surprise nobody did. 

After seeing him bump into one of the 
signs. I crossed the street, look him by the 
arm and asked if I could help him He said 
he wanted to cross Third Street to get to 
the Klump Academic Center I took him to 
the corner, waited until the light turned 
green, and watched until he crossed over 

Please— students, faculty, and other 
staff, if you see this student or others like 
him, won't you stop and offer a helping 
hand** I know they will be most grateful 
Let's share our eyes with those who can't 

I might add also : let's help those who are 
crippled or have other infirmities. Please ' 
Please' Can we not be our "brother's 
keeper''" What if we were

Veterans' Day has been bounced around 
so much it's beginning to look like a volley- 

President Woodrow Wilson served. He 
dedicated Nov. 11 as Armistice Day in 
1919. It commemorated the end of World 
War I. 

Returning the ^erve. President Dwight 
D, Eisenhower signed an act of Congress 
in 1954 to honor all veterans on Nov 11. 
making it Veterans' Day, 

In 1968 a Senate Judiciary Committee 
tapped a set-up. reasoning Veterans' Day 
could be "observed appropriately" on the 
third Monday in October "without in any 
way detracting from the historical signifi- 
cance to the close of World War I." 
Fall on Mondays 

Thus, the Uniform Holiday Act went into 
effect on Jan. 1, 1971, The act caused 
Veterans' Day, Memorial Day, Washing- 
ton's birthday and Columbus Day to fall on 
Mondays each year 

This created four more three-day week- 
ends of leisure per year for the working

Vandals ruin 
signs and posts 

Damage to signs and posts in the 
college's parking lot between the Cromar 
building and Unit 30 on Friday, Oct 21. 
was the result of unknown persons, ac- 
cording to the security office. The van- 
dalism occurred between 11 p.m. and 12:15 

The damage was in excess of $100, The 
incident is being investigated by city 
police. It was apparently the act of 
someone who decided to use the parking 
lot to "see how strong his car was," said 
Chief Security Officer Lawrence P 

The student parking signs and stop sign 
which had been struck, were apparently 
straddled by the vehicle which returned to 
flatten those missed the first time 


the Monday holidays 

But veterans' groups were not pleased 
with the Senate committee's play. They 
spiked the issue, returning Veterans' Day 
to Nov. 11. It takes effect in 1978, 

Rep. Anthony J. Cimini of the Pennsyl-

Columbus Honored 

Also the same Senate committee was 
responsible for making Columbus Day a 
national holiday. 

The committee said the day would honor 
"the courage and determination which en- 
able generation after generation of im- 
migrants from every nation to broaden 
their horizons in search of new hopes, and 
a renewed affirmation of freedom " 

Because tight-lipped George never 

revealed his birthday 'he probably didn't 
want to tell a lie) the Senate committee 
changed his birthday holiday to the third 
Monday in February The committee said 
the exact date "is subject to conjecture." 

General John A, Logan of the Grand 
Army of the Republic, a northern 
veterans' organization, declared Decor- 
ation Day (now Memorial Day) to be May 
30 in 1868. 

Dat« changed 

The holiday was changed to the last 
Monday in May be the Senate committee. 
The committee claimed it was being 
celebrated in various parts of the country 
on a day other than May 30, 

Columbus Day, Washington's Birthday 
and Memorial Day are not scheduled for 
any changes in the near future The game

Baby outdoes dad in contest 

By Bob Kramer 
Staff Writer 

At ten months, he still needs his mother, 
cries when he's scared, but is old enough to 
win top prize— $25— in a bumper sticker 

Even little Nathan Lundy's father, 
Ernest, a sign painting student from South 
Williamsport, couldn't match Nathan's 
entry. Ernest received the $10 consolation 
prize. Nathan got "$25 because his ideas 
were better." quipped Stephen Serman, 
admissions officer and one of the two 

Serman and Chester D. Schuman, 
director of admissions and records, ran 
into a "problem" while pondering which of 
the 19 entries was best to promote the 
image of the school. 

Narrowing it down to two entries, they 
couldn't decide which to use. One they 
liked for the "design" the other for 
"coloring and lettering." 

They resolved to combine the best 
features of both and give one contestant a 
consolation prize for his contribution. They 
turned the sample stickers over to obtain 
the names off the back to notify the win- 

The judges expressed a feeling of doubt 

about how to break the news to the runner- 
up. The feeling vanished with a flip of the 
cards. They discovered the winners both 
had the same last name — Lundy They 
must be "brothers" figured Shuman. 

TTie winning entries were redone by 
Ernest Lundy, mating the best ideas of

sday. Schuman said the sticker will be 
"printed up and given to anybody this 
year." free of cost. 

"This (the total winnings of $35) goes 
into the savings account for Nathan's 
future education." said Ernest. You can't 
make it today without some kind of 
technical education." he said. Adding that 
an education will be even more important 
when Nathan gets older. 

Nathan didn't comment while he clen- 
ched the checks and smiled gleefully— 
something he refused to do for the 
photographer. "He likes money," 
remarked his mother Mrs. Linda Lundy. 

The bumper sticker contest, sponsored by the Admissions Office, held Us award 
presentation last Thursday morning. Left to right: Stephen Serman: Ernest Lundy

Walk-away thefts rising 
rapidly throughout campus 

A rash of walk-away thefts, totahng ( 
$1,000 throughout the campus in the last 
few weeks, is increasing to an alarming 
rate, according to Robert L. Schultz, 
director of business operations. 

Theft of student tools, valued at $340, 
was reported in the auto body shop. 

One hundred and forty cement blocks 
were removed from the Cromar masonry 
division. They are valued at $42. A bench 
grinder, valued at $150, was also taken

The thefts, totaling $1,321, are not

evidence pertaining to breaking and en-

Schultz said, "When we have to replace 
the equipment, it can't help but increase 
the cost of instruction." 

Concerned with the possibility of rising

To the Editor: 

We would like to draw attention to what 
we feel has become a serious problem here 
at the college, make some observations on 
that problem, and relay some information 
to the student body which hopefully may 
solve that problem. 

The behavior by some students at the 
Monday night movies has become ob- 
noxious, sickening and totally disruptive. 

The drinking, catcalling, loudmouthing 
and other pseudo -macho outbursts not only 
present an image of immature, crude, and 
gross student body to anyone from the 
community attending the movie, but 
destroy the evening for faculty, other 
students and their guests, as well 

These outbursts will no longer be

It was Halloween night. "It's Alive" was 
showing in the Klump Auditorium I was 
surprised. Surprised because the film was 
unexpectedly exceptional. Surprised that 
the film was interrupted because there 
were animals loose. 

Like the others present, they had paid 
admission but their public conduct was 
enough to make me want to pay to keep 
them out In my seat I could feel the 
emotional pull of the film, experiencing 
the projection of a human ordeal. 

It seemed that whenever the film 
requested a reaction from the audience, at 
those crucial moments that allow un- 
ders'tanding of the film, the answer was 
screams and yells intended as mockery. 

At this point, the house lights blazed and 
the movie stopped. Whatever effects the 
film may have conveyed were lost. These 
animals were incapable of allowing 
themselves to feel. They seemed afraid to 
be afraid. 

Their experience was confined to their 
imagination's boundaries. Apparently 
they felt that everyone reacted as they did 
and thought of themselves as spokesmen 
for the entire audience. 

Public response is welcome and en- 
couraged but I'm hoping that those who 
respond offensively are included on an 
endangered species list.

Youth grants developed 
for humanities projects 

The National Endowment for the 
Humanities has developed a program 
called Youthgrants. It is designed to 
support projects in the humanities, which 
promotes research, education and public 
activity. This federal agency, which was 
established by Congress, places emphasis 
on projects thought out, planned, and run 
by high school students and graduates and

Slick flick cures 
our lost humor 

By Bob Mondell 
Staff Writer 

"The Kentucky Fried Movie" is exactly 
what the doctor ordered to cure America's 
long-lost sense of humor. And from all 
indications, it seems like this slick Hick is 
doing the job- 

From start to finish, the movie extracts 
the mirthful sound of howling, screaming 
laughter from the audience. In my opinion. 
"The Kentucky Fried Movie" is well worth 
this kind of reaction. 

There is no real plot to speak of: just a 
conglomeration of short sketches and 
blackouts designed for "mature" in- 

Nothing is sacred in the film's af- 
termath- Parodies of commercials and 
movie previews are abundant. 

Some of the more memorable highlights 
of "Kentucky Fried" include a spoof of 
Kung Fu movies and a take-off on the 
"Point-Counterpoint" segment of CBS's 60 

Newscasts and sex also take a beating 
Even the subject of death is given the once- 
over in this hilarious satire on life 

Brief appearances by actor Donald 
Sutherland and comedian Henry Gibson 
add to the overall brashness and lunacy. 

Much of the humor is sex -related, but it 
is presented in such a way thai even the 
most stuffy person will have to emit a 
giggle or two. 

"The Kentucky Fried Movie" is most 
definitely a hit. 

Even Colonel Sanders would have to 
admit it's knee-slappin", foot-stompin' 

college undergraduates. 

Youthgrants involves a wide range of 
activities in humanities, such as history, 
literature. language, philosophy and ar- 
chaeology. These activities can be 
prepared in group research projects, 
films, exhiibts and curriculum develop- 
ment projectS- 

Although adults may act as advisors, the 
actual work of the project must be carried 
out by the young people. 

Most grants awarded to the young 
people are less than $2,500 and range up to 
a maximum of $10,000 for group projects 

The idea of this program is to provide 
young people with the opportunity to carry 
out a subject of special interest to them. 

The Youthgrants applications deadlines 
are Nov 15. 1977 for projects beginning 
after May 1. 1978 and April 15, 1978 for 
projects beginning after Oct. 1. 1978.

offered evenings 

For those who are unable to pursue an 
associate degree full time, the business 
and computer science division offers 
evening courses, according to Dr Donald 
B, Bergerstock, division director

business management, secretarial 
science, computer science, and industrial 
technology A few of these are also 
scheduled on Saturday mornings. 

Dr. Bergerstock said enrollment this 
year totals 527. of which 80 are working 
toward an associate degree. 

He also said those attendmg evening 
classes are what he calls "non -traditional" 
students: full-time employed adults and 
others who cannot attend college full time, 
but desire the education

there were about 50 students in two or 
three accredited courses. Last year there 
were over 300."

'Spirit of St. Louis' still 
flying, but without Lindy 

Slatf Writer 

In 1927. after his famous first trans- 
Atlantic Ocean crossing. Charles A, 
Lindbergh visited every state in the Union 
and was given a hero's welcome which 
hasn't tjeen duplicated since. 

Last Tuesday, two unusual craft landed 
at the Lycoming County Airport. One. a 
restored 1931 Stinson .SM-8A. was along for 
mechanical reasons The other, a replica 
of Lindbergh's "Spirit of St Louis." was in 
the air for the Lindbergh Commemorative 

To celebrate the 501h anniversary c 1927- 
1977 > of the historic crossing, the 
Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) 
had these two planes tour 104 cities and all 

48 continental United States. 

In all. 12 pilots flew the two planes Eight 
of those pilots were assigned to fly the 
replica in shifts, while the remaining four 
flew the "helper " plane 

Verne Jobst, of Illmois. was the pilot of 
the replica when it landed at the Lycoming 
County Airport for refueling. Jobst said 
that he had flown the plane through 85 per 
cent of the tour. In describing his flight. 
Jobst said It was "just phenomenal "

New programs begin for prison inmates 

Two new programs have been started at 
the federal penitentiary at Lewisburg for 
the inmates. 

The programs are to give the inmate.s 
who are taking the courses credits that will 
be acceptable to colleges after their 
release from the institution. 

Thomas E. Vargo, director of com- 
munity development and coordinator of 
physical education, listed the two new 
programs. One is Special Electronics. The 
other is Special Building Technology and 

Each program is two semesters and 
earns 14 credits a semester The purpose 
of the electronics program is to prepare 
persons taking the course to enter the 
electronic apparatus industry as an 
assembler or minor repairman The 
student will have acquired enough skill 
and knowledge to be able to progress into 
trouble shooting and major repair 

The purpose of the building technology 
and estimating program is to provide the 
student with the fundamental trainme in 

the field and the procedures used in the 
building industry, 

It has been designed to prepare the 
graduates for jobs such as building 
estimators. material expeditors, 
materials men, building supplies and 
equipment salesmen, code enforcement 
officers, and mid-level construction 

According to Vargo. both of these 
programs will help the graduates to find 
jobs more easily or to enter other colleges 
for further education

X-country squad finishes as ciiamps 

"""" I ^-^ 

A first year coach training a squad of 
first-year college students winning the 
Eastern Pennsylvania Community College 
Athletic Conference'' A rare and im- 
probable happening but never the less 
true— right here at the college. 

The Wildcat cross country team has 
done it, and very decisively. Sporting a 6-1 
record the team continually blew the 
opponents off the field and won the last five 

Even though the season ended just a 
little over a week ago. Coach Dave 
Houseknecht is looking ahead to next year 
"I've already been recruiting for next 
year, and we plan to take the conference 
next year," said Houseknecht. 

Bucks County Community College, who 
forfeited some of their matches because of 
a strike, said they would beat the Wildcats 
next year. Houseknecht remarked, "We 
feel confident in accepting the challenge."

College swim test 
held last week 

A college-sponsored swim test held at 
the YMCA Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 
1 and 2, drew about 280 students. 

According to Mrs. Donna R. Miller, of 
the 280 participants only 12 were weak 
swimmers. Mrs. Miller, assistant 
professor of physical education, added 
that those that could not swim told the 
instructors beforehand and didn't par- 
ticipate in the test. 

Mrs. Miller said that 50 to 60 persons are 
interested in taking a swimming course 
next semester. Courses include general 
swimming, two separate lifesaving 
classes, and a survival class.

Bv Linda Springman

"Did you see the Blarney Stone"*" is the 
t* question LouS Dudish, hbrarian. has been 
a* asked most since her trip to Northern 
t Ireland in September. 
°^ "Love Invasion Mission" 

> She participated in a trip on Sept, 20 
jr through 27. sponsored by the United 
Methodist Church, called a "Love Invasion 
Mission" in which 250 people from all over 
the United States took part Ten persons 
from this immediate area went, including 
an attorney, Scott A Williams, the coor- 
dinator, and his wife Carol, whose 
descendants came from Northern Ireland 
^ The purpose of the trip was to promote 
a Christian love and try to relieve tension in 
-C the area. 

Jj Each person paid his own travehng 
h expenses, but stayed with a family in 
C Omagh. a town in the county Tyrone Miss 
5 Dudish stayed with a family of five 
4 Fxperience was a first 

^ "The entire experience from beginning 
to end was a first for me," she said "This 
was the first time I'd been outside the 
United States and the first lime I'd ever 
flown on a plane," 

She flew from Kennedy International 
airport to London on a British Airways jet 
;^er spending two days there she con- 
tinued on to Belfast 

Similar trip planned 
Although it was the first such trip made 
by Miss Dudish, it was the fourth and last 
one to be made by the group to Ireland A 
similar trip is planned to London in 
November 1978. She hopes to accompany 

Of the Irish people she said, "I found 
them very warm yet reserved, and un- 
derstandably so Security is tight and the

in the past and the family had been 

"Not as bad as papers ssy" 
"Things are bad there, but not as bad as 
we're led to believe by the papers, I think 
it's blown up and political," said Miss 
Dudish In her stay, she saw no acts of 

Homes are built of concrete with no 
basements- Warmth is furnished by 
fireplaces or central heating. The people 
are easy-going and the families are close- 
knit, according to Miss Dudish 

She enjoyed the food, which consisted of 
a lot of stews, greens and pastries, She 
noted that there didn't seem to be much 
fruit - 

No speed limit 

She relayed a story about a ride she took 
in a taxi cab. The cabbie was driving at a 
rather high rate of speed, dodging in and 
out of traffic. She asked him, "What's the 
speed limit here'*" He said there isn't any. 
This is reflected in the fact that they have 
the highest accident rate in the United 
Kingdom, she said 

While there, she visited a mental 
hospital, Westminster Abbey, and the 
childhood home of John Wesley, Miss 
Dudish didn't get to see the Blarney Stone. 

The mission was concluded with a rally 
in Belfast which approximately 700 people 
attended; at which Williams was 
presented with a plaque 

"I hope to go back one day on my own. 
for it's beautiful country Everything and 
everyone I saw had such a heaJthy look," 
she said smiling.

One regulation is that no handicapped 
student may be segregated from public 
schools and may not be housed in a 
separate section of the school. 

By Aug. 1, 1977, all programs and ac- 
tivities would be made accessible to the 
handicapped. To be provided are such ser- 
vices as reassigning classes, hiring aides 
to interpret for the deaf, and buying 
Braille books. 

During the next three years, the college 
may have to make structural changes, the 
president indicated. 

The administration was given six 
months to develop a transition plan 
outlining the steps necessary lo make the 
structural changes. William W. Fritz, dean 
of administration, has been appointed by 
Dr. Feddersen to coordinate this plan. 

The plan will include consultation with 
the handicapped and organizations 
representing them. The plan will be made 
available for public inspection 

The deadline is Dec. 3, 1977 for the 
completion of the transition plans.

Housing Committee meets, 
receives new suggestions 

"lively discussion"" al the Nov. 
housing committee meeting yielded some 
"worthwhile suggestions", said David M 
Heiney. assistant dean of student and 
career development. 

One suggestion was that a "campus resi- 
dence organization" be formed with each 
residence having its own representative 
The purpose of such an organization would 
be to allow the students "some control" 
over their housing situation, according to 
Dean Heiney. 

Another idea discussed was allowing 
each large rooming house to have its own 
elected committee to handle problems 
within the house. Students would be 
reprimanded and fined for damages by the 
internal committee in such a situation. 

Dean Heiney also added that housing is a 
"two-way street" between the landlords 
and the college. A "good, working relat- 
ionship" is necessary. Dean Heiney said. 

Five landlord representatives and 

lembers of the student body and faculty 
attended the meeting in which problems of 
both the students and landlords were 

Representatives for the landlords cited 
problems involving students reserving 
rooms and then nol showing and damages 
caused by "troublemakers". They sugges- 
ted that the college become more involved 
with these problems. 

Students claimed, however, that several 
of the housing arrangements are "less 
than desirable". Dean Heiney added. 

Also discussed at the meeting was the 
housing booklet being formulated by the 
committee. Dean Heiney said the book is 
in its first draft and he hopes it will be 
ready soon for students and landlords to 
review before its final printing. 

The next committee meeting will focus 
on revie.wing the booklet- A date for the 
meeting has not yet been set.

The state appropriations bill, passed last 
summer, added a restriction that could be 
costly to community colleges, stated Dr. 
William H, Feddersen. president. 

The stipulation regarding community 
college appropriations was added, he said- 
It states that when federal funds have been 
received toward an operating or capital 
expense of a community college, there 
shall be no state money allocated for the 
same purpose 

The cost burden would then move from 
the state to the college's sponsoring 
districts and students from non -sponsoring

Community College Act which would 
specifically prohibit the state from 
benefiting from federal funds obtained by 
community colleges This bill would

Drop-box in Klump lobby 
for January on trial basis 

There should be a drop-box for returning library books in the 
Klump Academic Center. 

According to David P. Siemsen, director of learning resources, a 
drop-box will be placed, on a temporary basis, in the lobby of the 
Klump in January. 

The box will be removed "if there are problems that come up for 
me and my staff— such as garbage being thrown in," said Siemsen. 

The walk to the library from the Mump during inclement weather 
can be a very discouraging factor in determining whether books are 
returned by a due date. 

A urop-box will be a service to students during nasty weather ; but, 
as Siemsen warns, the box must not be abused.

Steve Allen's National Jerk Test in- 
cludes as its ninth question the following: 
"While seeing a play or motion picture, 
have you ever spoken to a companion in a 
voice louder than a whisper^" If the an- 
swer is yes, the test taker has scored two 
points towards jerkness. The other 
questions in the test include: "Do you 
think motorcycles and sports cars should 
run with very loud, unmuffled engines*'" 
"Have you ever thrown garbage out of 
your car^" "Have you ever spent more 
than 30 seconds telling someone how drunk 
or high you had gotten on the previous 
evening?" and "Do you say 'sherbert' 
instead of 'sherbet,' or "I could care less' 
for 'I couldn't care less'?" 

I shall be glad to administer, at a 
mutually convenient time, the entire test 
to any Monday-night loudmouths wishing 
to discover whether they can rightly call 
themselves All-American jerks.

To the Editor: 

Having read the letters to the editor last 
week and having experienced some of the 
rude and animalistic nature of these 
students mentioned. I must commend Dr. 
Peter Dumanis on his actions. 

The time has come for the majority of 
the student body, who want to see and hear 
a fine film, to stand up for their rights and 
let the minority of loud-mouthed and 
apparently very shallow people know they 
are not welcomed, 

These people are the same ones that 
have been the loudmouths that have 
continually disturbed the community on 
so-<:alled "party nights" and helped make 
WACC's reputation be what it is. 

If this is what we want— which I don't 
believe— then let's start ignoring this 
behavior and not feed their need for at- 
tention and recognition. 

The films shown on Monday nights are 
for everyone to enjoy, not just for a few 
who feel they are shown for them "to have 
a good time" on. If anyone's rights are 
being stepped on, it's the poor soul that 
came to watch the film. 

Finally, if we cannot stop the childish 
ways of these few, then possibly we can 
show cartoons at 6:30 on Mondays for 
these selected few who feel they cannot 
"have a good time" otherwise But one 
warning to these same few: After your 
time at WACC is up and you experience the 
"real world" you may realize that 
everything is not a joke, and when the 
walls surrounding you come crumbling 
down, and there is nothing there but a 
naive mind — don't blame anyone but

O.J« gives 
]VFL class 

By VernDeatrich

O.J. Simpson has got to be the unluckiest 
world-famous multi-millionaire there is 
He is a runner whose unequaled talents are 
rotting away with the Buffalo Bills, a team 
that does a very bad imitation of an NFL 

A knee injury, a running back's greatest 
fear, has put him out for the season and 
may have ended his career. 

TTie Los Angeles Rams, a team that O.J. 
wanted to play for more than any other, 
couldn't come through with the players or 
cash to obtain him from the Bills. 

And now, during a period of intense 
depression, O.J. is threatening to retire. 
Football's greatest drawing card since 
beer was permitted in the park during the 
game, may have played his last game. His 
greatest dream, playing for a cham- 
pionship team, has never been realized- 

But he is living proof that one player 
does not make a football team , The best he 
could do, that any player can do, is con- 
tribute. Maybe now owners will realize 
that spending millions for that one 
superstar will not result in a cham- 

All football fans owe O.J. their gratitude. 
He has shown us some of the most exciting 
running since Napoleon's retreat from 
Waterloo. The persistence he has shown by 
staying with the Bills instead of becoming 
a free agent has given football an extra 
touch of class.

Winter Weekend planned 
during special meeting 

being built 

An energy-saving, plastic greenhouse is 
under construction at the Schneebeli 
building in Allenwood. 

The air-inflated, two-layer plastic 
greenhouse was designed and constructed 
by 15 students from the Comprehensive 
Employment Training Act (CKTA) of 
Lycoming and Clinton Counties 

Dennis E Fink, instructor in hor- 
ticulture and coordinator of the CETA 
program, said the students are doing 
everything but the electrical wiring, 
heating and plumbing 

Construction of the greenhouse started 
in June. 

Fink cited a few of the advantages to the 
plastic greenhouse It is 30 to 50 percent 
cheaper to heat and it is something that the 
students can actually construct them- 
selves, he said 

Once construction is completed, the 
students will have the opportunity to work 
with plants from inception lo the retail 

There will be two types of crops grown in 
the greenhouse Cut flowers, for use in the 
foil design program and potted plants, 
which will be sold at the college bookstore 

Fink said the main advantage to the 
greenhouse is that it gives the students 
much more practical experience in 
working with planis

More participation needed 

Sludenls who frequently cruise the halls or sit in the cafeteria and

Decisions regarding major student activities are made by the 
Student Government Association (SGA) 

During recent meetings, there have been as few as nine senators 
voting on issues which pertain to the entire student population.

Each curriculum here at the college, according to the SGA Con- 
stitution, is entitled to have at least one elected senator In areas where 
a curriculum has more than 49 students, an additional senator is to be 

A senator's job is to attend SGA meetings and find out what is 
going on in student government The senator then is to inform the 
students of the current issues and gather their views on the issues 

After gathering the views of the students he represents, a senator 
should analyze his findings and vote on the issues accordingly. 

There have been too few senators showing up for SGA meetings to 
vote on issues which eventually affect all students. 

Out of a possible 72 senators it is sickening to see only nine or 10 in 
attendance and participating at meetings. 

All students are urged to find out who their senator is and why he is 
not attending meetings. If no senator has been elected in your area, 
find out why it has not been done. 

Students should bring their complaints to the floor of the SGA 
meetings and not air them while sitting in the cafeteria or cruising the

To the Kditor: 

On Tuesday. Nov 29. I attended a 
special meeting of the StudenI Oovern- 
ment Association The topic of the meeting 
was the proposed SGA Winter Weekend 
As with all SGA meetings, it was open to 
the StudenI body. 

\f an outsider walked into the meeting, 
his reaction would be one of surprise; he 
would have the opportunity of witnessing a 
spectacle not usually associated with 
special business meetings 

The proposals brought forth in the 
meeting were not thoroughly researched 
and were not presented in a manner which 
allowed easy evaluation by those persons 
present The meeting was nearly void of 
organized procedures and practices 
Advance written announcements of the 
meeting did not exist, announcement was 
necessary since the officers wanted 
general student input 

One got the impression of a general lack 
of planning and organization 

!t is regrettable that SGA operates in 
this manner As the representative 
organization on campus, ii has the 
responsibility to provide leadership and 
direction for the student body at large It 
should set examples for students to look up 
to to follow 

The blame for the present condition of 
SGA lies jointly with both the officers of 
SGA. and with the average student-at- 
ge The officers need to provide the 
strong leadership qualities 
m organization of such 

learly-defined objective 
;hould be announced Actif 
laken to increase student 

lerests in SGA and of its achievements 

Students also share responsibility for 

SGAs poor record This is an organization 

udents for students In order to work 

properly and lo msure the proper 

and goals 
IS should be 

To the Kditor: 

■■Of all of the dirty habits in the world, 
why would anyone choose tobacco 

Apparently some people enjoy the taste 
of chewing tobacco and snuff. Why else 
would someone take a chew now and then'' 
The former of the two questions would 
provoke any tobacco chewer into a mild 

Miss Helm is correct about some folks 
dislodging their used tobacco into nearby 
■water holes " III have to agree it is a bit 
of a tummy twister Why come on so heavy 
to all us snuff dippers'* Perhaps being a 
pinch more pleasant about your request 
will help keep the drains unplugged 

Surely, an apology is due to many of us 
folks who enjoy the delicacy of a fine chew.

Stolen car may be link to damage 

Bv Chuck Tooley 
Staff Writer 

A car owned by Randy L. Wolfgang, an 
automotive mechanics student from 
Elizabethville. may figure in the damage 
to seven sign posts in the college parking 
lot between Units 29 and 30 

Damage occurred between 11 p.m.. Oct 
20 and 12:15 the morning of the 21st, ac- 
cording to a written report from Security 
Officer Cecil C Cryder 

Investigation began shortlv after 
Security Officer Frank J. Bennett 
discovered a number of broken signs and 
bent -over posts while on patrol. 

Chief Security Officer Lawrence P. 
Smeak joined Bennett around 6: 15 that 
morning discovering that tire marks found 
in the lot straddled the signs. 

Additional marks in the gravelled lot 
showed, the vehicle's operator circled to 
return and strike the signs missed on the 
first sweep- 
About 10:45 am , Oct. 24, Cryder, 
checking the parking lot south of the 
Automotive Shop, was approached by 
Randy Wolfgang, who stated that it might 
have been his blue Dodge Dart GT that 
damaged the college signs He added that 
he reported his car stolen Thursday, Oct 

21 . to the Williamsport Police Department 
whose officers found it the following day. 

The police verified the fact, stated 
Smeak's report, but did not mdicate when 
it was stolen According to Wolfgang, the 
police told him they spotted the car and 
gave chase The unknown person stopped 
the car and. taking the keys, ran from the 

Again city police were paged and ad- 
vised of a possible connection between the 
signs and stolen car by the security office 

Wilson stated he had a piece of tailight 
lens from the "offending machine" that 
was believed to have been left at the scene 

Cryder. in his report to Smeak, added 
that it could have been Wolfgang's car. It 
was noted the car had green paint on the 
front bumper's underside, and damage to 
the hood and side of the fender Cryder 
stated he checked the tire width which was 
the same as the marks on the street 
Possible connection 

The city police, conducting the in- 
vestigation, believed an incident occurring 
about 11:40 the previous night might have 
been connected According to a report 
from Smeak, city police observed a vehicle 
southbound on Susquehanna Street from 

Vine Avenue The car jumped the curb and 
struck a city sign 

The operator. Charles H, Jeffries, an 
automotive mechanics student from 
Wealherly, was cited for the damaged 

The city police noted other vehicle 
happenings occurred around the college 
the night of the 20th Tire marks making a 
complete "doughnut " were found on the 
1200 block of West Third Street and further 
evidence of the same on the 900 block 

City police officer Don Wilson, con- 
ducting the campus investigation, believed 
the damage may have been the act of the 
same operator and vehicle, according to 
the written report. 

Wilson, accompanied by Security 
Officer William W Polcyn. found Jeffries' 
car in the 800 block of West Third Street A 
check on the car did not reveal any 
evidence pertaining to Jeffries' vehicle 

Tire tracks checked 

A further check, noted in the security 
report, revealed that the car in question, 
by its tire tracks, could be a small foreign 
car or possibly a Volkswagen, 

The report then relieved Jeffries of the 
responsibility to the damaged college 

Smeak closed his report by adding: "the 
green paint on this vehicle could very well 
be from our sign posts It is the same 
shade. The blue paint left on our signs 
from the offending machine is a very near 
match from the vehicle reported stolen. 
This also will be up to the local police to

SGA discusses Vermont 
trip and concert plans 

Report of /of

'eting appears 

elsewhere in 


issue al The 


Sixteen students, including officers, 
attended the Nov 22 Student Government 
Association (SGA) meeting held in the 
Earth Science Building in Allenwood. 

Clare A Noldy. SGA treasurer, reported 
expenditures totaled $210 for a coffee 
house and $20 for doughnuts Also, ac- 
cording to Miss Noldy. a $500 deposit was 
sent to Steppenwolf to assure a concert 

Ernest L Airgood. president of SGA. 
said the deadline date for the deposit was 
before this meeting, He said there wasn't 
enough time to call a special meeting 
concerning the concert. 

Concert plans discussed 

Robert A Musheno. vice president of 
SGA. discussed plans for the concert. 

"We are lining up a concert with Step- 
penwolf for Monday night. Dec. 12, " he 

According to Musheno, SGA is "going in 
with a promoter from Williamsport." The 
costs will be split, half and half, with 
Michael Sauers. Musheno added 

The group will cost SGA $2,200, Musheno 

He noted. "Their prices sky-rocketed 
up." This is due to a movie which Step- 
penwolf is making in Boston, said 

The proposed admission charge is $3 
with ID and $4 for the general public, 
according to Musheno 

Winter Weekend planned 

Following this discussion. Airgood 
opened the floor for suggestions for Winter 
Weekend activities. 

Airgood noted, if a ski trip was desired, 
there are a number of possible locations 
He said he would check into them further 
and a discussion would be held at a special 
meeting on Nov. 29 

An estimated 96 students would be able 
to participate with the allotted $2,000 fund, 
said Airgood. 

A suggestion by David A. Rhone, a civic 
engineering student, was made concerning 
the skj Irip Wrniont has more facilities. 

Id really like to go to Vermont 1 really

'God' appears and 
creates commotion 

By Candv Kriends 
Staff Writer 

"Oh. God' ' starring George Burns and 
John Denver is a hilarious lale that would 
make any member of the family roll on the 
floor with laughter 

George Burns poses as God, He chooses 
Denver to tell the world 'it will work" 
Denver has a concerned and loving wife, 
two normal children, and he is manager at 
the local grocery store He is an average, 
ordinary, everyday man who doesn't even 
believe in God These are some reasons 
why Burns picks him lo be his prophet 

Denver receives a letter telling him he 
has an appointment with 'God" in a 
downtown building on the 27lh floor When 
he arrives, the building doesn't even have 
20 floors, but the elevator takes him to the 
27th noor 

There he hears "God" through a 
speaker, and later hears him on every 
station on his car radio, including WGOD, 
when the radio has been broken for 
months Denver is still convinced it's some 
kind of joke— until "God" shows up in his 
bathroom wearing a fishing cap. ordinary 
clothes, and tennis shoes, 

'God" confesses to Denver that one of 
his big faults was to make the pit of an 
avocado too big and inventing tobacco He 
also tells him that the world wasn't made 
in six days— it only look one 

When Denver begins believing, he tells 
everyone he has seen God, and God says il 
will work Then he loses his job, his wife 
wants him to 'go away for awhile." and 
his children start to avoid him But, 
Denver doesn't lose hope of finding

Kvl>avtrilt, 111 

Ten proposed programs have been 
lutlined in a survey from the office of posl- 
iecondary educational instruction. 

The proposed programs include: agri- 



rr;il estate curriculum, and avio 
proposed building and plant mai 
curriculum is a certificate program 

According to the survey, the purpose of 
the agri-business program Is to provide 
general education and agricultural 
technical information to help those 




production agriculture. 

Helps prepare 

TTie program is designed to prepare 

students for employment in agri-business 

sales and service and to improve and add 

philosophy of social agencies, and 
development of specific skills to prepare 
the graduate to perform in his area of 
interest with little or no additional training 
on the part of the employer 

The program will also provide the 
students with the background appropriate 
forcemeni a"nd for continuing their education in a four- 
curriculum, year program 
urriculum. Ready for marketing 

The purpose of the marketing mer- 
chandising curriculum is to prepare the 
students for employment in mid- 
management positions in retailing, 
marketing, merchandising, and related 

The real estate curriculum will be of- 
fered entirely in the evening with three of 
the courses being offered each semester. 
The program satisfies the course 
requirements for the State Real Estate 
Commission's tests for both a salesper- 
son's and a broker's license. 

The objectives of the building and plant 
mechanic curriculum are to 



i of those students who develop knowledge and i 

return to the home far 

The biomedical electronics technology 
program would prepare students for 
positions involving the installation, 
operation, repair, maintenance and 
calibration of electronic equipment vital to 
diagnosis and treatment of disease 

Major emphasis is on electronics theory 
and lab work Additional course work

nd servicing of 


graduate to 


technical electronics skill to a health care 

The office machine technology program 
IS designed to instill the 





physics in a person desiring employment 
in the general area of office equipment 
engineering, design, and repair. 
Signal Controls 

Digital electronics is the study of cir- 
cuitry and equipment used in numerical 
control machinery, computers, and other 
apparatus that is automatically controlled 
by a signal fed into some type of thought- 
producing system. 

The law enforcement and corrections 
program emphasizes an understanding of 
the administration of justice at the local, 
state, and national levels. Il is designed to 
prepare the student with a broad foun- 
dation appropriate to enter various fields 
of law enforcement and corrections, or to 
transfer into a related baccalaureate 
degree program 

In addition, to classroom and laboratory 
instruction, the student will receive field 
experience focused on the services 
provided for crime prevention, control, 
and treatment. 

The human services curriculum is 
designed to provide students with un- 
derstanding in the dynamics of working 
with people, the organization and 

custodial, security and safety equipment 
used in commercial and industrial type 
buildings; to develop an understanding of 
the management of supplies, equipment 
and inventory control, and to develop an 
understanding and knowledge of personnel 
practices appropriate to building main- 

If enough interest is shown in the areas 
of these programs, it is possible the 
programs will be started around 1978-79,

dean of post secondary instructional

He had reservations about going 

"We tried to be very careful , - " 

Dr Richard A Sahn spoke thoughtfully, 
adding: "It's not as bad as all that " 

Dr. Sahn, sociology instructor, 
described one of his visits to New York 

The visit had not been ordinary 

Last year, Dr Sahn arranged for his 
urban sociology class, in four separate 
groups and at separate times, to ac- 
company him to New York City. Each 
group spent one full day observing "the 
Big Apple." 

"The whole idea was not to go to touristy 
attractions," he said. "Our purpose was to 
see the problem side of New York City." 

Why did Dr. Sahn plan such a venture? 

The class deals with social problems and 
the social and cultural atmospheres of 

"I couldn't teach urban sociology with 
people who had never been outside of 
Williamsport," he said. 

He then compared Williamsport's 
population of 38,000 to the eight million of 
New York City. 

Dr. Sahn said, "The trip was more 
important than a book report or term 
paper. Just the experience ..." 

Referring to the four trips, he said, "I 
try to do slightly different things each 
time, but basically, it was the same." 

Each group first went to the South 

Bronx, which Dr. Sahn said

Dr Sahn. a Brooklyn native, earlier 
advised the students to wear old or very 
casual clothes He explained, "You don't 
walk through the South Bronx in good 
clothes if you're white." 

Recalling one adventure in a park, he 
said, "We almost got ourselves mugged!" 

The students also observed living and

Dr. Sahn flinched: "That's a horrible "it was a very easy thing for me to do. I 

knew where to go." 

Dr Sahn said the trips were not school- 
sponsored but were "class trips." 

Students paid their own expenses, 
although the college provided a station 
wagon and gas. 
Each group left on a Saturday morning 
and returned at about 1 or 2 a.m. on 

"I enjoyed the trips, " Dr Sahn said with 
a grin. "I thoroughly enjoyed showing

In January, he plans to lake another

This time Dr Sahn and his students will 
receive coverage by the New York Times 
An interview and picture-taking session 
have already been arranged. 

The planned coverage developed from

According to a letter which was sent to 
fall graduation candidates, reservations 
were to have been made by Dec, 9. 

special meeting of the Student 
Government Association (SGA) will be 
held today at 4 p.m.. according to Ernest 
L Airgood, SGA president 

Airgood said the planned location for the 
meeting is Room 204. Klump Academic 
Center- In case the room is occupied, the 
Klump Auditorium is the alternate 

Winter Weekend plans will be discussed 
at this time, said Airgood, The final 
decision concerning the activities will be 
made today, according to Airgood 

"Our advisor came up with a different 
idea for Wmter Weekend." said Alfred S. 
Kaufman 3rd, speaking for Frank J 
Bowes, director of student activities and 
placement The suggestion was to use half 
of the alloted $2,000 toward the Vermont 
ski trip and half toward activities on 

No action was taken concerning the 
suggestion at the meeting. The proposal 
will be discussed further at the special 
meeting, said Airgood, 

Mary C, Jacobson. an accounting 

student and senator, commented on the 
proposed Winter Weekend activities 

"Out of the 50 people in my curriculum I 
talked to, they all want to go to Vermont 
and they wouldn't come to any activities 
on campus," Miss Jacobson said- 

In conjunction with this Michael M. 
McCord, an advertising art student and 
senator, said "Of the students in the ad- 
vertising art division— they didn't feel it 
was fair to take a limited number of 
students to Vermont. They prefer ac- 
tivities on campus" 

Airgood said. "We are having other 
things on campus" He mentioned the 
upcoming concert and coffee house 

Airgood continued by saying. "I haven't 
made reservations yet < for Vermont 
trip' ... 1 just let it go " He went on to 
say, "I'm going to call another meeting 
because some students weren't happy."

Decision today 
ior Weekend 

When the Student Government Association convenes in special session 
today, plans for the upcoming Winter Weekend are to be finalized 

As of right now. there are two factions : TTiose who favor a ski trip to Ver- 
mont and those who favor a winter weekend closer to campus. 

At the last regular session of the SGA, (here was a suggestion made to sphi 
the $2,000 which has been appropriated for Wmter Weekend. 

This suggestion, if accepted by the senators at today's session, would ap- 
propriate $1,000 for the Vermont weekend and the other half would be used to 
fund a weekend of activities closer to campus 

A compromise of this kind would be a definite step in the right direction. 

Il would allow the students who can afford the $25 to $35 for the ski trip to 
participate in a trek they might not otherwise be able to do 

On the other hand, students who may not be able to see their way clear to 
make such an expenditure would be able to reap the benefits of having a Winter 
Weekend closer to campus 

We feel that this kind of compromise would be fair to all students. But in 
order to gel this covenant passed, students arc going to have to show that they 
really care about how their activity fees are spent 

The easiest way to accomplish this is for all concerned students to attend 
today's meeting and at least verbalize their feelings in one way or another 

Yes' the fate of Winter Weekend is now in the hands of all students. After 
all. i( is the students who are footing the bill 

After today, complaints regarding Winter Weekend will justifiably fall on 
deaf ears This is the last chance. 

A Question of time 

What happened? asked some readers upon opening last week's 
edition of the The SPOTLIGHT. They had discovered two blank pages. 

Pictures in a snowstorm, responded some SPOTLIGHT staffers in 

Actually. The SPOTLIGHT faced— what with complications 
brought about by a severe snowstorm— a choice: Delay distribution of 
the newspaper to allow for the "trimming out" of the blank sheets . . . 
Or, get the newspaper out on time The choice was: Get the newspaper 
out on time 

The SPOTLIGHT appreciates the interest of those who asked.

The Christmas shoppm^ season is once 
agam upon us The hustle and bustle for 
gifts IS looked at by many with anticipation 
and excitement al this time every year 

This season of goodwill and cheer en 
trances some people so much, thai Ihey 
begin their annual present -buying long 
before Thanksgiving A few start in August 
or .September 

That type of ridiculous action on the part 
of the consumer sets off a brainstorm ( '* > 
in the store manager's head "It the people 
are willing to buy Christmas presents in 
Octotier. why not pul out seasonal mer- 
chandise at that lime'" " they think lo 
themselves with greedy glee 

The obvious result is sickening 
Christmas commercialism has invaded 
our lives like a plague No longer are the 
yulelide shopping days confined until after 
the Thanksgiving holiday 

The merchant's gluttony and lust for 
thai green stuff is the main cause for this 

It seems this year, more than others, we 
are being prematurely inundated with 
Christmas wrappings, trees, decorations 
and limitless gift ideas 

Kven .Santa's Parly 

Even Santa Claus arrived early (his

area stores a week before Thanksgiving' 
Isn't that overdoing it just a little'? 

Kach year the shopping season gets 
longer and longer Soon we will have no set 
period for 'V'ule buying at all Kvenlually.

paraphernalia out all year long Then

I hope not By the time Dec 25 actually 

arrives, everyone is so sick of decorated 

trees, candy canes and fat men in red suits 

that the day holds no special meaning 

It's not there 

The joy of seeing a child's face light up 
at the sight of a Christmas tree is just not 
there because the tot has probably been 
looking at the tree for six weeks straight 

Maybe the presents aren't even a sur- 
prise If they've been lying around the 
house since August, chances are the child 
knows everything he is getting 

Perhaps 1 should give equal time to the 
other side of the issue. Many individuals 
shop early so they can avoid the annual 
last-minute rush For some, it works out 

But for me, that final dash for gifts and 
trimmings the day twfore Christmas is as 
much apart of the holiday as mistletoe and 

Time for fun 

The pace is quick and hectic But even 
though you bump into people, they don't 
mind It's Christmas' Bump into someone 
while you're carrying an armload of toys

most likely get a dirty look and a few

yuletide shopping season, the holidays can 
only become bland and ordinary.

Development center assists m career choice 


By Elaine Helm 
SUff Writer 

Lawrence W. Emery, director of the 
career development center, believes there 
are two types of students, those who are 
"active" and those who remain "passive." 
The active student, according to Emery, 
"maximizes his or her opportunities," by 
taking advantage of all opportunities, 
while the passive student simply "lets 
things happen." 

The career development center. Room 
210. Klump Academic Center, is designed 
to assist students, as well as members of 
the community, who want to take an 
"active" part in determining their future. 
Crisis point 

Susan L. Halberstadt, career 
development assistant, observes that most 
students "reach a crisis point" before 
coming to the center. "Many are not doing 
well in class or can't even face going to 
class," said Miss Halberstadt. 

She believes it may be to the personal 

advantage of any student to check in the 
center concerning both the course and the 
job market before making any career 

The center is equipped with tools to 
assist students in making both personal 
and career decisions. 

The information available in the center 
is up-to-date and includes the Occupat ional 
Outlook Handbook, developed by the 
Department of Labor; the Pennsylvania 
occupational projections through 1985; 
Careers Monograph, job guidance 
manuals; Vocational Biographies, in- 
terviews with people involved in various 
careers; SRA career information kits, and 
Pennscript audio-visual aids involving 
career choices. 

Appointment not necessary 

Miss Halberstadt stated that some in- 
formation can be borrowed from the 
center. Students and community members 
are welcome to come, with or without an 

appointment, to browse. 

Counseling services are also available 
through the career center Again, ap- 
pointments are not always necessary. 

A new service offered by the center is 
transfer information. Career Development 
Assistant, Rhona W. Wilk, specializes in 
the center's transfer program. 

She said most students who come to the 
center for transfer information want to 
know what credits will be accepted by 
other colleges The center has files and 
college catalogs to assist students with 
transfer questions. 

Transfer Day on Oct 13 was sponsored 
by the center Other college represen- 
tatives will be visiting the center 
throughout the year, according to Miss 

Community work 

The career development center is also 
involved in work outside the college. Six 
community education courses were of- 

fered through the center last fall; three 
were in the college and the other three in 
Selinsgrove. More courses are being 
planned for this winter; they deal with 
"men in transition" and "career ex- 
ploration for women," said Miss 

The center's Career Coach is still on the 
move. It's first stop, the Bloomsburg Fair, 
was followed by a visit to the Tioga CVjunty 
teachers' in-service day on Oct 21 in 

The Career Development Center, which 
was funded through a federal grant, 
opened in Sept., 1976. During its early 
months, work -study students did much to 
help organize the center Currently, one 
work-study student, Carol A. Bitting, a 
secretarial science student from Burham, 
assists in the center. 

At present. Emery believes the facilities 
are rather "cramped. " He said if plans for 
the student services building go through, 
the center may be able to expand. 

Instructor traces roots, offers course 

daSorineman in in Unit fi and u/Hl rim fnr in ..laaUo •^ •^ 

By Linda Spring 
Staff Writer 

Long before "Roots" and the urge that 
overtook thousands to trace their family 
tree, William R. Parker, instructor of food 
services, had already been doing so for 
several years. 

In addition to teaching the food service 
class, he also teaches a class in basic 

The class was first offered last semester 
and was attended by 14. 

The spring class, to begin on Jan. 19, will 
be held every Thursday evening from 7 to 

.. Unit 6 and will run for 10 weeks. 

Parker, who is of English, German and 
Irish ancestry, said he was inspired to 
begin the search 10 years ago after 
listening to family legends and feeling 
curious to know more about the people in 
the old photographs he saw. 
Begin search 

With some people warning him to "leave 
sleeping dogs lie. " Parker began his 
search at the James V. Brown Library, the 
court house and church records. 

With the help of relatives who volun- 
teered information, he traced his tree back 

10 generations to find that the first Parkers 
had settled in Trenton, N.J, after coming 
from England in 1695 

Among other distant relatives, he 
discovered one who had been at Valley 
Forge, and crossed the Delaware with 
George Washington He also found he was 
distantly related to people he'd known as a 

Parker admitted he did find some black 
sheep, but he added that anyone who 
traces his lineage "probably will sooner or 

i there change? 

When asked if this project had in anyway 
changed his life, he said, "Oh, yes. It's 
made me become more interested in 
people and local history" 

He added that an amateur genealogist 
must learn patience He told of having 
searched for seven years for information 
on one person before opening a book one 
day, quite by accident, and finding just 
what he'd been looking for 

Parker s display and those of some of his 
former students may now be seen in the 
lobby of Klump Academic Center. 

Upcoming activities discussed by SGA 

By Michelle Klein 

Twenty-three people attended the Stu- 
dent Government Association <SGA) 
meeting on Dec. 6. 

Topics of discussion included: Winter 
Weekend activities (see separate story), 
the Steppenwolf concert, the constitution, 
the Pennsylvania Community College Stu- 
dent Association (PCCSA) and upcoming 
social events sponsored by SGA, 

Robert A. Musheno, vice-president of 
SGA, reported on plans for the concert. He 
said advertising is being done through 
local radio stations and newspapers. Also, 
according to Musheno, posters will be put 
up throughout the campus 

More concerts requested 

Ernest L. Airgood. SGA president, said 
he received a memo from Dean Edmund 
A. Walters 3rd, which requested more SGA 
sponsored concerts for the students. 

Airgood commented, "We had one (con- 
cert ) over Fall Weekend. The turn-out was 
really bad." He said, "If they realized how 
much work and money went into a concert, 
they would understand the reason for so 
few concerts." 

Leo A. Murray, a journalism student and 
SGA senator, brought up two questions 
during the course of the meeting involving 
the SGA constitution. 

He questioned the number of senators 
required to be present lo hold an official- 
meeting- At a previous meeting, Airgood 
told Murray thai 34 senators had returned 
the required forms. According to the 
constitution, said Murray, 50 percent plus 
one senator must be present to hold a 

meeting. This would make all meetings 
thus far invalid because a quorum was not 

Airgood responded by saying. "As of this 
meeting, there are 19 confirmed senators 
which have returned the forms." He said 
the previous figure was incorrect. "This 
number made all the previous meetings 
valid," said Airgood. 

Attendance tow 
Airgood said something must be done 
concerning the poor senator attendance. 
"Ifstimefor a shakedown," said Airgood- 
He said a review of all senators and their 
attendance records will be made- 
According to Airgood, 72 senators are 
eligible to participate in SGA meetings. 
Murray also questioned the payment of a 
$500 deposit for the concert. He said, ac- 
cording to the constitution, a vote by the 
senate must be made for expenditures 
aver $200. 

Alfred S. Kaufman 3rd. responded to the 
question. He told Airgood to continue with 
the meeting while he searched the consti- 
tution for an answer. Kaufman later read a 
sentence which he said clarified the

goals for the year, according to Robert A 
Bingaman. ICC president 
. The purpose of these goals, he said, is to 
better the clubs and the college by 
sponsoring events to gather organizations 

"We've got to develop a sense of unity in 
all the clubs." he said- 
Allen supports goals 

David A. Allen. ICC representative from 
Gamma Epsilon Tau and the Outing Club, 
strongly supports these goals 

He said. "I would like to see improved 
communications between the ad- 
ministration and clubs, and between the 
SGA and clubs We should be closer " 

Mary J Ueibler, Circle K Club 
representative, said, "The ICC meetings 
help all the clubs. They (club leaders) can 
find out what's happening " 

According to Bingaman. "We (ICC) are 

Party given 
for elderly 

Lysock View may be commonly thought 
of as a home for the elderly, but between 
6:30 and 7 p.m. last Tuesday, the 
recreation room nf that facility was filled 
with approximately 100 "youngsters," 

The home was the scene for the third 
annual Christmas party sponsored by the 
college's practical nurses- 

The elderly clapped their hands and 
sang along to the music of Sammy Ray's 
band. Some even danced, 

An appearance was made by Santa and 
Mrs CTaus, portrayed by Theresa R. 
Smith and Linda L, Scott, both of 

Accompanying Santa and Mrs. Claus 
were four helpers They were Teresa A, 
Wyant.ofLock Haven; Bonnie Sticklin. of 
Wellsboro, Torey Wagner, of Mifflinburg, 
and Christianne Wilkins. of Montgomery 

Money for refreshments was raised

Bucktail students 
take campus tour 

A group of students from Bucktail Area 
High School visited the college campus 
last Thursday. 

The students were interested in finding 
out more attout different programs offered 
at the college 

Some of the programs they investigated 
included journalism, broadcasting, 
secretarial science. business

basically involved in the planning and 
growth of clubs. The clubs have common 
goals and common problems. We get 
together to solve problems and achieve 
goals " 

Kfforts demonstrated 
Several examples of ICC's efforts were 
demonstrated this semester 

On Saturday. Nov 19. ICC. Circle K and 
GET sponsored a dance at the American 
Legion Post 617 

Each group had specific duties in 
planning and presenting the event Each 
club also received a share in the profits 
On Monday. Nov 7, the Cinema Club 
presented "The Godfather ' and the Outing 
Club sold refreshments outside the 

According to Allen, this enabled the 
Outmg Club to bring its members together, 
make money and to help the Cinema Club- 
ICC is planning more activities to 
generate club unity and student in- 

Bingaman said the Outing Club, the 
Veterans Gub and ICC will jointly sponsor 
a dance on Friday. Jan. 13, 

Actixities considered 

A "brainstorming session" at last 
Thursday's ICC meeting produced several 
activities for consideration. 

One such idea is an all-club project to 
sponsor a special weekend next semester 

Also at the meeting. Alfred S, Kaufman 
3rd, SGA representative, suggested each 
club set up a table on registration day next 

This, he said, would publicize each club 

and possibly generate more membership 

Communications center approved 

A communications center — which Allen 
said, "the clubs desperately need"— was 
approved on Tuesday. Nov. 29 

The center will include a bulletin board 
for club use only, mail boxes for club of- 
ficers and a drop-off for campus 

According lo Bingaman, a completion 

date has not yet been announced 

The center may be placed in the KAC 
entrance and manned by a work-study 
student, he said. 

ICC's active representatives exhibit 
much enthusiasm and determination. 
Major setback faced 

However, they admit facing one major 
setback: Out of 29 campus organizations, 
only about half are actively participating 
m ICC. 

Those participating believe it is 
necessary for all the clubs to be 

Bingaman said the more represen- 
tatives ICC has, the more weight it carries. 

"Hopefully, by next semester." he said, 
"we'll be organized enough in our own 
thoughts to organize larger and better club 

"I'd like to see every club have more 
members .. every club to have more

First nursing aptitude test 
is required for admission 

By Linda Springman 
Staff Writer 

Testing for spring term practical nur- 
sing students is being given by the college, 
according to Mrs Jean Cunningham, 
coordinator for the program This is the 
first of its kind, having just been approved 
by the board in July, 

In addition to the college's general 
admission policy and requirements, 
practical nursing applicants must comply, 
she said, with the foltowmg guidelines: 

Tlie applicant must exhibit satisfactory 
performance on the Psychological Service 
Bureau Aptitude Test for Nursing as well 
as the English, reading, and math 
placement tests required by the college 

11 is recommended that high school 

graduates complete one year of high 
school algebra or general math and one 
year of high school biology or other lab 
science course with a grade of "C" or 
better in both 

An interview must be set up with the 
admissions staff, with resulting recom- 
mendations for admission to the practical 
nursing program. Priority will be given to 
health assistant students of any sponsoring 

Admission to the nursing program is 
contingent upon completion of the medical 
and dental examinations by the physician 
and dentist of the applicant's choice, Mrs. 
Cunningham said. The applicant assumes 
the cost of the examinations. Findings on 
the physical and dental exams must in- 
dicate that the applicant can undertake a 
program in nursing, she said. 

In the event that the evaluation of 
success probability results in a negative 
admission decision, Mrs, Cunningham 
said, additional consideration will be given 
upon successful completion of appropriate 
developmental courses to correct iden- 
tified deficiencies. A personal interview 
and assistance by the co-ordinalor of the 
practical nursing program, are also 
required in this case 

T^ere are 60 students in the fall class 
Approximately 35 will be added to the 
spring class, the coordinator said

By The Associated Press 

(Washington)— The federal government 
spends $70 million a year to give 
Americans hints on nutrition, The product, 
say two new studies, is uniformly dull and 
amateurish and misses its target. 

The government's nutrition publications 
are described as too simplistic in some 
cases and too complicated in others- 

Madison Avenue advertising experts say 
two booklets are atrocious- They could be 
replaced by a "good-looking, yet in- 
formative poster"' 

The studies by Virginia Polytechnic 

Institute and The Library of Congress, say 

11 federal agencies operate about 30 

nutrition education programs 

I'.S. Is busy printer 

Publications, which account for a 
significant part of the $70 million, are 
among thousands of materials issued 
every year by the United States— one of 
the world's busiest printers. 

One Library of Congress study found 
that pamphlets on infant feeding fail to 
address current concerns about breast 
feeding and new products 

In addition, study officials say federal 
agencies trying to spread the word about 
better nutrition rely on the printed word to 
reach consumers who do little reading

state, giving 50 percent which is $6,500,000. 
according to Dr. William H Feddersen, 
president of the college. Dr Fedderson has 
recently received a letter of approval from 
Caryl M. Kline, secretary of the State 
Department of Kducation, for the money.

the Federal-Vocational Grant, $2,400,000 
and the Capital Reserve Fund. $1 million, 
which is being saved for renovations.

Change in Christmas 
doesn't daunt the day 

We moan and groan about Christmas commercialism. We get 
exhausted just thinking of the hustle-bustle of shopping. 

We count our pennies knowing we cannot afford what presents we 
must buy 

We decorate our homes with the same decorations year after year. 

We put up our artificial trees and satin balls. The fake icicles look 
as though they melted years ago 

Our Nativity scene is shabby and we can't part with it; it's 

Cookies become more and more expensive to bake. 

Our Santa suit doesn't fit anymore. 

We bea{ our brains for weeks; we wonder if it's worth it. Christmas 
is not Christmas anymore we say. 

But when Dec. 24 arrives, we don't seem to be as tired as we can 
don attire for midnight church services. We notice the smiles on our 
faces are not forced anymore They are real, and they stay. 

We don't even mind not finding a seat in church. 

We sing the familiar carols and feel a tingling in our hearts. 

We realize thai the mind-bending, body-aching work is really what 
Christmas is all about. 

We may hate the preparation, but the end result is worth it. 

Christmas has changed, but so has the world. Maybe years ago, 
they didn't rush and spend as much as we do. 

This is 1977— soon to be 1978. 

The meaning of Christmas will always stay the same, but the 
preparation will change year after year. 

When Christmas Day arrives we do remember what this day 
really is. We know we are celebrating a birthday. 

And most of all we remember each other. 

Christmas is a day of love and joy. And nothing will ever change 

Merry Christmas 

Urban Sociology Class: 
more than just lectures 

Dr. Richard A. Sahn, sociology instructor, has made his Urban 
Sociology class more than just the usual lecture class. 

During the semester, Dr Sahn takes his students on trips to New 
York City These trips allow students to actually experience what Dr. 
Sahn teaches, not just read and talk about it. 

We think this change of pace which Dr. Sahn has initiated is 
commendable and should be continued. 

Our hats are off to Dr Sahn for doing something different with his

We can not change our grades now. They have been determined by 
our performance during the semester 

However, the last week seems to be the worst. We lose sleep over 
exams hoping to pull our grades up for mom and dad to sec. We hope 
for that pat on the lack from our family showing their pride. 

But, before we can accomplish that pat on the back we must work 
hard. We have to give our all if we are to succeed in our chosen 

When the end of the semester rolls around, we see ourselves 
becoming edgy, wondering why we did not study more in September. 

We say to ourselves, "Why were those parties more important 
than the studying we had to do?" 

Well, it's too late to worry now. What is done is done. We can't 
change this semester, but we can make the change next semester. 

We have to remember what our priorities are. We don't have to 
give up partying all together, but we do have to decide what is more 

Do we want to excel in our careers or do we want to excel in par- 

Yuletide spirit transforms

things, such as decorating, it is refreshing to see clubs and individuals 
caring enough to dress up the college for the holidays. 

As you walk the halls of Klump Academic Center and Unit 6, you 
are confronted with many touching Yule reminders. Christmas trees, 
tinsel, hoUy, flashing lights and wreaths abound 

The display in the front lobby of KAC, the financial aid and ad- 
missions offices, the cafeteria and areas in Unit 6 are especially 
notable for their seasonal trimmings All are bedecked with a unique 
vuletide glow. 

Christmas is a great time of year. Amid the rushing and 
preparations for the holidays, it is good to know people are concemeo 
enough about the college to "deck the halls." 

We thank all those who helped to make the season a little brighter 
through their decorating efforts.

Sex role 



By Elaine Helm 

Staff Writer 

Instances of sex role stereotyping at the 

college have been under investigation by 

Anna D. Weitz since September 1976, 

She presented the results of the project 
to the Board of Trustees at the Dec. 12 

The purpose of the project, she said, was 
to review materials and policies at the 
college for any instance of bias on the basis 
of sex. 

The investigation, she said, included 
division brochures and pamphlets, 
samples pf textbooks in most curricuiums. 
interviews with division directors, touring 
facilities, and distributing an "attitudinal 
questionnaire" to faculty members, 
female students, and a sample of male 

TTie investigator said she was looking for 
any "generalizations and assumptions" 
about abilities, interests or preferences 
that have "nothing to do with the in- 
dividual." but fs based only on sex. 

The college, she said, is "typical" in that 
problems do exist, but she also commented 
that it seems "committed to try to do 
something about it." 

Some changes recommended in her final 
report included revising brochures so that 
they do not read as if written only for men, 
changing parts of the nursing curriculum 
report to include men more extensively, 
and making special attempts to recruit 
students into "non-traditional"

office, according to Michael Tyson, 
financial aid director. 

Students are reminded that the forms

She said that the project "put WACC in 
perspective to the whole problem of 
sexism in vocational education." 

Hired by the college to conduct the 
federally -funded project, she was for- 
merly assistant dean of students at

Unique aid pays off school costs

Staff Writer 

lique types of financial ait

!n a job to "pay off" hi: 

One of the 
at the college 
Basically, it 
student is gi 
school costs. 

The program is different in that it offers 
an alternative to the traditional grants and 
loans, while it also gives vocational ex- 
perience in the student's chosen field 

According to Michael Tyson, financial 
aid director, approximately 250 students 
will have worked for the college work- 
study program (CWS) at the end of the 
school year 

There are actually two parts to the CWS 

program. Tyson said. Jotiscan be obtained 
part-time on campus and, in the summer, 
off campus for non-profit organizations. 

Tyson said the jobs offered through the 
programs are endless 

On campus, they range from office work 
to custodial and maintenance jobs. In the 
summer, the jobs are obtained for the 
students by their area school district. 
These include work in state parks and 

Funding from government 

According to Tyson. 80 percent of the 
funds for the work-study program comes 
from the federal government The other 20 
percent comes from the state The college 
also pays some of the costs. 

While the student is enrolled in the CWS 
program, he is not guaranteed a job, Tyson 
said. The college takes no responsibility 
for placement This is left to the Penn- 
sylvania Higher Education Association 
Agency (PHEAA). 

I'.S. citizenship required 

According to the college's financial aid 
brochure, eligibility requirements for the 
program include US citizenship, 
enrollment in a college with "at least one- 
half of a full load during the academic 
year" and financial need. 

Awards ranging from $200 up to a 
maximum of $1,000 lo eligible students, 
based on need, are available. 

The academic year work -study program 

offers students the opportunity to work ' 
few as two hours per week up to a 
maximum of 20 hours per week." ac- 
cording to the pamphlet. Work hours are 
scheduled around classes. 

According to the brochure, the summer 
CWS program gives students "the op- 
portunity of working up to 40 hours per 
week either on the college campus or in 
their own home area " 

Tyson added that every attempt is made 
to see that students receive work-study 
jobs that areas closely related to their 
chosen field as possible. 

This provides the student with ex- 
perience, as well as earning money 
towards tuition-

WAS A hick; 

Kuhn and Finley 
still going at it 


Dec. 20, 1977 


By Vern Deatrich 
Surr Writer 

Bowie Kulin, the commissioner of 
baseball, is fast becoming the E F Hutton 
of baseball; when he talks people stop and 

Two weeks ago the Cincinnati Reds gave 
up a minor league player and 1"4 million 
dollars to get Vida Blue from the Oakland 
A's. A legitimate and worthwhile deal to 
everyone concerned, except to the czar of 
baseball, Bowie "The Grand" Kuhn 

Charlie Finley, owner of the A's, has lost 
more money and players because of the 
emergence of free agent deals than any 
other owner. And now he feels that he's 
due to reap in a few dollars That's why he 
demanded so much for Blue. For some 
reason this escaped Kuhn's warped logic 
The last time Finley tried to get rid of 
Blue, to the Boston Red Sox, Kuhn stepped 
in and vetoed the deal Finley sued Kuhn 
but lost. Kuhn later fined Finley a few 
thousand dollars because Finley made a 
derogatory comment about Kuhn. Now 
that the plot has thickened we'll examine 
the latest run-in between these two. 

After Kuhn heard about the deal bet- 
ween Cincinnati and Oakland he said, in 
effect, "Now wait just one minute here" 
and told the teams involved that he would 
think about the deal and tell them in a 
couple of weeks whether he approved or 

What's thereto think about? No foul play 
was involved, Finley didn't kidnap Johnny 
Bench and demand I'j million for him. It 
was a clear cut honest trade. A little ex- 
pensive perhaps, but let the Reds do what 
they want with their money. 

If Kuhn wants to think about something, 
which could be dangerous for him because 
he may burn out his remaining 12 brain 
cells, he should think about the Yankees 
But maybe he thinks its alright for one 
team to buy all the players listed in Who's 
Who in the World of Baseball 

But if Charlie Finley tries to swing one 
deal It's equivalent to Charlie Manson 
wiping out an entire convent. 

As it turned out Kuhn decided to 
preserve his brain cells and came up with 
a decision the next day And to everyone's 
surprise, especially Finley's, he approved 
the deal. 

So all is quiet on the western front 
Oakland, and we all await the next war to 
be waged between Kuhn and Finley 

Cagers win 
third, 90-76 

The Wildcats chalked up their third 
win of the season with a 90-76 victory over 
the Lock Haven State College Jayvees. 
The Wildcats, now 3-5, are idle until Jan. 9. 

James S. Thompson, business 
management student from Milton, led the 
cagers in scoring during the Friday night 
game with 26 points. 

Patrick J, Kimble, general studies 
student from South WUliamsport, contri- 
buted 20 points, 

Thompson also led the rebounding 
category with 13 off the boards. Kevin N 
Lewis, an electrical technology student 
from Westfield, was second in this cate- 
gory with U caroms. 

Wildcats lose 95-85 
after second-half 

The Wildcats gave undefeated Keystone 
Junior College a struggle last Wednesday 
night as they watched a nine point half- 
time lead dissolve into a 10-point loss 95 to 

The half-time score resulted in tough 
aggressive basketball by both teams in the 
second half. This, coupled with what a few 
Wildcats called "sloppy reffing", brought 
about a fight mid-way through the second- 

Shoving under the basket was the direct 

cause of the fight as both benches cleared 
and a few fans came onto the court. One 
fan, a lady was toting a chair, she was 
stopped short of the court by another fan. 
No players were ejected from the game 
James S, Thompson, a business man- 
agement student from Milton, led all 
scorers in the game with 30 points. He was 
followed by Robert W Lehman, a con- 
struction carpentry student from Galeton, 
with 22 points. Lehman also led the team 
with 16 rebounds, one ahead of Thompson.

Ringo isn't up 
to his potential 

By Chuck Tooley

Rlngo the

This is from a Beatle? Well, a for- 
mer Beatle anyway Kinda makes one 
wonder what's going; down at Atlantic 
Records. I mean, why they ever let this 
album be released 

I like the Beatles To me. they are the 
best thing in the music industry with their 
appeal to five generations. Even my 
grandfather likes them. I do like Ringo; 
but. to he honest, his new album on the 
Atlantic label is sheer banal garbage. 

Sorry, but that's what it is Warner 
Communications in which Atlantic 
Records is a substantial subsidiary, ought 
to watch this gifted artist to find out what's 

"Ringo the 4lh" is certainly not Ringo 
the Beatle. and that's the problem He has 
shed all of his former past (none of the 
other former Beatles appear on the 
album) and there lies the problem.

Ringo really disco's on the album. 
Disco? In an age where it's on the way out? 
C'mon It seemed that none of the former 
fab four had jumped on the disco band 
wagon when suddentiy, ol' Ringo 's there. 

And it's too bad, because many of his old 
fans were expecting a little more rock and 
a little less hustle. 

Oh, well There is one good aspect and 
that's a song dubbed, no kidding. "Wings." 
In fact it's the best thing Starr has done 
since his collaboration with George 
Harrison on "Photograph." 

However, that song just doesn't elevate 
the load of shoddy material included in the 
album's repertory. Don't waste your 

Some quick comments . . . 

lOcc's "Live and Let Live" a new two- 
record live set by the super -group, is below 
expectations. Without Lol Creme and 
Kevin Godly the album loses its charac- 
teristic appeal and comes up sounding like 
any two-bit group. To any of those ex- 
periencing lOcc for the first time, it's a 
must To any fan of the old lOcc, stick to 
"Sheet Music" and "How Dare You."

and bombarded the area with up to as much as an ad-

Wednesday were also canceled. The college resumed

Love often provides the theme 
for many of the day's top hits 

Music. It characterizes people and times. 
We identify witli the feehngs, moods and dreams depicted in the 
music we enjoy. 

Today's music— disco, hard rocli, easy listening, bubble gum and 
country western— generally, centers around one basic theme: love. 

A look at Billboard Magazine's American Top 40 and Country 
Countdown charts illustrates this 

Billboard's top five pop tunes for the week of Jan. 15 were: 

—"Baby Come Back" by Player, 

—"How Deep Is Your Love" by The Bee Gees, 

—"Here You Come Again" by Dolly Parton, 

—"You're In My Heart" by Rod Stewart, and... 

—"Back In Love Again" bv LTD. 

Many Country Countdown selections express love's frustrations: 

—"I Just Wish You Were Someone I Love" by Larry Gatlin, 

—"Standard Lie Number One" by Stella Parton, 

—"I'm Knee Deep In Loving You" by Dave and Sugar, and... 

—"Lonely Street " by Rex Allen, Jr. 

Other themes however, slip in from time to time. 

For instance. Randy Newman expresses his opinion with "Short 
People". The tune continues to climb on the American Top 40 chart. 

And, Johnny Paycheck occupies the Country Countdown's number 
one slot. His outspoken tune— "Take This Job and Shove It". 

But, most of today's artists are characterizing the people and the

As children in the 1960's, we learned of 
violence and strife early in our lives. We 
watched one November day as our nation's 
beloved leader was shot down by an 
assassin's bullet over national television. 

The violence had only just begun. As we 
grew, so did the conflict in Southeast Asia, 
We saw it all— the bombings, Ihe blood- 
shed, the orphaned children, and the 
wounded soldiers— each night, right after 
dinner, on the six o'clock news 

More assassinations followed There 
was rioting in the sU-eets. in the schools, 
and on college campuses The crime rate 
soared. We watched it all 

Violence commonplace 

Soon, the violence became almost 
commonplace Our nation got up each 
morning and went to bed each night 
knowing that we were engaged in a bloody 
battle on Ihe other side of Ihe globe: 
knowing that our own streets were 
erupting with haired and sirife 

Still, we slept and dreamed sweet 

American soldiers are no longer dying in 
battle. Rioting is seldom seen on the news 
The streets seem to have quieted 

Now, from the voice of public opinion, 
comes— "There's too much violence on

and others are accused of corrupting

violence" should be such a public issue. 
The violence we saw as children was much 
worse, for it was real 

Television can only imitate reahty. We 
can't blame the networks for creating 
violence. The fight should not be to gel rid 
of violence on television, but to gel rid of 
violence in realilv

About a week ago I walked into the 
cafeteria between the busy hours of noon 
and 1 p m When I finally got a table I was 
annoyed to find that it was filled with trash 
andfull ash trays 

Why must students be subjected to this? 
Smoking is a dirty habit, but does Ihe non- 
smoker also have to tolerate this in the 
form of full and overflowing ash trays? 
Certainly no one eats so much that he 
cannot move himself to perform a simple 
task like throwing his trash away This is 
plain laziness! 

Why repay a service with a slap in the 
face'' Have a little respect for the cafeteria 
staff The college Is not required to have a 
cafeteria, it is a service 

Leaving trash on Ihe tables and floor just 
makes extra work for those who have to 
clean up It is also taking advantage of a 

Take a little time to throw away your

'Goodbar' exposes 
humor, desperation 

Vonnegut's 'Slapstick' 
solves old mysteries 

The sleazy world of New York City night 
life is graphically exposed in "Looking For 
Mr. Goodbar." 

The film is accented with stark, 
frightening reality and delivers a clear 
message for those bar cruisers looking for 
a little action Anyone who sees "Good- 
bar" will probably never enter a bar alone 

Diane Keaton portrays Teresa Dunn, an 
Irish Catholic woman who finds her empty 
life is taking her nowhere A victim of polio 
as a small child, she is domineered by her 
father, a strict and stubborn Irishman. A 
scar on her back leaves her self-conscious 
and very unsure of her life 

Desperate for excitement, Teresa 
travels the singles' bars She lives an 
almost schizophrenic existence— working 
as a teacher of deaf children during the 
day and becoming a self -destructive bar- 
hopper at night. 

Caught by sex 

She ultimately gets caught up in a 
whirlpool of drugs, sex, and strange men. 
Teresa finds herself in an endless trap 
which eventually leads to her murder. 

Keaton 's depiction is electrifying and 
shattering to watch. 

Before "Goodbar." Keaton was 
primarily known as a comedic actress 
With this film, she displays another aspect 
of her abilities 

"Goodbar." although a dramatic film, 
allows for many humorous moments to 
shine through 

Award contender 

A highly probable contender for an 
Academy Award, the movie provides one 
of the most tragic pictures of alienation 
and desperation in years 

The climactic ending is sure to send 
shivers down one's spine, 

"Looking For Mr Goodbar" takes a first 
rate look at a world many never see. It 
could become one of the most important 
movies of the 70"s because of its view of 
one swinging single's deadly existence. 

The hereafter isn't worth looking for- 
ward to. In fact, it's akin to a turkey farm,

president, said the meeting was for Ertel 
"to become more familiar with the

After the luncheon meeting, Ertel and

Crayon industry is colorful, profitable 

BV The A«C(W>)at<w1 I>i>A.7o thf> pmintru ITn^U i. i... j . . — 

By The Associated Press 
If you thought this was the age of the fell- 
tipped pen and the colored marker listen 
to these statistics: 

Twenty years ago, 44 crayons were sold 
for each child in the United States between 
the ages of three and u Last year, the 
making of crayons was a 22-billion-dollar- 
a-year industry II sold 62 crayons per 

In other words, with much competition 
from similar markers, crayons are not 

A supply purchaser for public schools in 
the nation's capital says that last year, 
kids in Washington used about 150.000 
boxes of crayons. The purchaser says, 
"Other markers are popular, but I don't 
think they'll ever replace crayons." 

The crayon industry refuses to be caught 
nappmg. It's working on expanding the use 
of crayons in schools— and by adults 
Binney and Smith holds workshops around 

the country Each week, hundreds of 
teachers roll up their sleeves to try out new 
crayon techniques The promotions seem 
to be working. 

Binney and Smith, the biggest 
manufacturer, sold more than 98 million 
boxes of crayoos last year. 

The crayon, unlike the felt marker, goes 
back thousands of years to the Stone Age, 
when ancient man left his mark on the 
walls of caves To be sure, the crayons 
were not exactly like the ones we have 
today— but they were similar. 

Modern crayons are made by adding 
powdered pigment to liquid wax One of 
the first came from Binney and Smith at 
the turn of the century. 

It was in 1885 that Edwin Binney and his 
cousm, Harold Smith, began mixing 
lampblack with wax at their factory in 
New York. They made their crayons to be 
sold as marking pens for businessmen 
When they started adding other color 
pigments, the crayons attracted the at- 
tention of Mrs. Binney, a former teacher 

She urged that the crayons be sold to 
children for drawing The word crayon, 
incidentally, comes from the French word 
"craie," which means chalk Binney and 
Smith called their new crayons "ctayolas" 
at the suggestion of Mrs Binney They 
were sold for a nickel a box 

Crayons are now made by seven 
American companies They come in round 
and flat shapes, in small and large sizes. 
And they come in 72 rainbow colors, in- 
cluding silver, copper and gold They are 
exported around the world in boxes printed 
in at least five languages But they are still 
the most popular in the United States 

Crayons are no longer a nickel a box. But 
they have held up quite well in matters of 
innation Until 1957, an eight-stick box sold 
for a dime. Last year, the average price 
for eight crayons went up to 29 cents

Eel means gourmet meal, booming business 

By The Associated Pr 

That snakelikc fish, the eel, is one of the 
most nutritous forms of seafood, rich in 
Vitamin A. The flavor is delicate. The 
slippery creature has been eaten with joy 
by gourmets in many countries since 
ancient times. The eel is not often served 
in the United States 

However, eel farming is a business m 
parts of the US Efforts to promote the 
industry in Hawaii have stirred a lively 

One eel farmer with high hopes of tur- 
ning a sizeable profit is W R Livingston of 
Moncks Corner, South Carolina 
Livingston has planted three million eels 
in some muddy ponds, where they are 
being fattened up to be trapped and 
shipped live by air to Europe, Japan and 
other Asian countries 

People in Hawaii appear divided bet- 
ween those who want eels to be raised in 
the state for local dinner tables and for 
export, and those who tear the eels would 
wriggle free and upset the ecological 
balance in the islands. 

Maybe nt'xtyear 

A proposal to buy 50 thousand eels from 
North and South Carolina for an ex- 
perimental farm was defeated in the 
Hawaiian Senate after it had heen ap- 
proved by the House Sponsors of the 
measure hope it will fare better in next 
year's session of the legislature 

Supporters of the measure want the 
Pacific Stale to import a species native to 
the Atlantic But these eels have an 
unusual ability to slither overland from 
one body of water to another 

Zoologist Alan Ziegler believes that 
some eels would be sure to escape In his 
view, they are voracious predators that 
would harm Hawaii's prawn industry and 
marine life. 

Proponents of the bill insist the eels 
would be raised in escape-proof tanks with 
inward-curving sides, rather than in open 

Multi-million dollar potential 

The head of Hawaii's Board of Land and 

Natural Resources, Christopher Cobb, has 

a friendlier feeling for the eel He contends 

that it would be virtually impossible for 
the Atlantic eel species to ever establish 
itself in the wild in the islands. He says, 
loo. thai eel farming in Hawaii could have 
the potential of developing into a multi- 
million-dollar industry 

In Europe and Asia, eels have been sold 
for centuries. Specially designed ships 
with flooded hulls bring as much as 100- 
thousand pounds of live eels to Europe's 
dockside fish markets on a single trip 
Tank trucks rush the eels to restaurants, 
where they are displayed swimming in 
glass tanks so patrons can make their 

Ancient Romans fattened eels in large 
ponds, as the Japanese do today The 
Japanese consume more than 40 thousand 
tons of eels a year, usually cut as fillets, 
broiled and served along with steaming 

Roast eel is a traditional Christmas dish 
in Italy. Scandinavians, Germans and 
Dutch prefer their eels smoked. In 
England, eels usually are jellied or baked. 

Queen Elizabeth I. once called eel pie one 
of her passions 

The late American writer. Ogden Nash, 
wrote a brief verse about the slimy marine 
creatures. It went:

been practiced, but never existed as a 
written policy. It states that fuH-time

Soap (ABC, 9:30 P.M., Tuesday). Once 
an associate asked me if there was one 
thing on this green earth I could do 
without, what would it be? 

"Probably television." I rephed as he 
took a nose dive to the ground. He ap- 
parently was telly-addicted. Me.. I hate it. 

And I still do. With demeaning shows 
like "Charlie's Angels," "Laverne and 
Shirley," and "Logan's Run" being 
televised, I can understand why. 

But somewhere deep down I know I have 
seen something and strange as it seems, I 
have liked it. Well, for me to feel that way 
about a program is entirely a surprise 
resulting in many nights lying awake in 

Yeah, watching a television program 


In the Navy, a job means more than a good paycheck. 
It mean.s the adventure of seeing places like Greece,

What is me, is hesitantly casting a 
furtive glance at the immortal tube and 
callously laughing it off as utter waste. But 
when something you've despised for years 
suddenly draws your attention, look out— 
because you have either conformed or it 
really is good. And it has got to be good to 
put me in front of it each and every week. I 
want something that is going to satisfy me 
physically and renew me mentally. 

And then "Soap" comes on and suddenly 
I do feel renewed again as I sit back, 
watching the only television I have seen in 
an entire week. 

Significantly, the program is worth the

He said there is a possibility that the two days 
may be taken from the winter vacation, Feb. 20 to 24,

Marston dismissed through Bell 

Beautiful young people are 
accidents of nature; beautiful old 
people planned it that way. 

By Chuck Tooley 
Stan Writer 

President Jimmy Carter, 
through Attorney General Griffin 
B. Bell, has fired David W 
Marston, U.S. attorney for 
Pennsylvania's eastern district. 
Are they serious? 

This occurred while the U.S. 
attorney was pulling a blanket of 
corruption off of Democratic 
Representative Joshua Eilberg 
for alleged financial irregularities 
at the Hahnemann Hospital in 
Philadelphia. Something doesn't 
sound kosher and it's emitting 
directly from the Carter ad- 

According to Marston, 
President Carter contacted him 
and "sent me a loud and clear 
message that if you push too hard 

on official corruption, you en- 
danger your career. " 

Marston continued 

In other words, if Marston, a 
Republican, continued to in- 
vestigate and prosecute political 
figures— in this case Democrats— 
as he has in the past, he would 
jeopardize his own career. 

He did. In a moment of political 
sincerity, a politician did what his 
job called for and lost it. 

The picture became perfectly 
clear when Eilberg, a powerful 
congressman from Penn- 
sylvania's eastern district 
contacted the President and 
asked him to "expedite" Mar- 
ston 's dismissal. Eilberg was 
under investigation by Marston at 
the time. 

Removing the leader of any 

investigation involving corruption 
in a high office undoubtedly would 
reduce the chances of finding the 
truth, which Eilberg would like 
confined to a locked file. Not only 
that: Carter broke an important 
campaign promise of not putting 
party before politics. 

Corruption covered up 

Since Carter succumbed to 
Eilberg 's plea and fired Marston, 
he is covering up corruption as 
Richard Nixon did during 
Watergate with the firing of 
Watergate Special Prosecutor 
Archibald Cox during the 
"Saturday Night Massacre." 

The future of Carter's 
credibility rested chiefly on the 
Marston decision. Can we still 
shake a finger at Watergate and 
mutter shame, shame? 

Cagers lose 
to Luzerne 

The Wildcats' offense 
was shut down by the 
defense of the Luzerne 
County Community 
College team in the 
basketball game last 
Tuesday night. The final 
score was 67 to 89. 

Unable to move the 
ball inside for most of 
the night, the Wildcats 
were forced to turn to 
the outside shot. They 
did not, however, have 
much luck there, either. 

After the first half, the 
college team was forced 
to play "catch-up." 

The Wildcats, as a 
whole, only had 10 
assists the entire game. 
Pat J. Kimble, general 
studies student from 
South Williamsport, had 
five of those assists and 
led the team in that 

Kevin N. Lewis, 
electronics technology 
student from Westfield, 
and Bob W. Lehman, 
carpentry student from 
Galeton, led the Wild- 
cats with 14 points each. 

Lehman also led the

A grant totaling $19,000 to aid 
students in the developmental

received by the Career

to Lawrence W. Emery, director 
of the center. 

The program, Emery said, aids 
students in reviewing types of 
experiences they need to enter

includes students who have been 
out of school for some time and 
those who are considered 
"educationally disadvantaged".

20-ton 'Lady' was an 'Eager Beaver' 

By Bob Kramer 
SUff Writer 
The last remains of the only 
known survivor of World War II to 
receive the Distinguished Flying 
Cross are housed in the main hall 
of the college's aviation center. 

She once weighed 20 tons and 
was propelled by four 1,250 hor- 
sepower motors. She is now 
reduced to a left, front fuselage 
plate which bears her name and 
boasts her accomplishments. 

The Eager Beaver was the 
oldest American bomber to 
survive the rigors of the European 
Theater of Operations. 

The Eager Beaver was assigned 
to the 368th Bomb Squadron, 306 
Bomb Group, 8th Air Force at 
Westover Field, Mass, in August 
1942. There she was dubbed the 
Eager Beaver by Lt. M. E. Reber, 
according to Lee Kessler of Ohio. 
Kessler painted the beaver in- 
signia on her and was to later 
become closely associated with 

From her assigned base in 
Thurleigh, Bedford County, 
England, the Eager Beaver flew 
45 missions. Twenty over the 
standard 25 missions required for 
a Distinguished Flying Cross. 
Each mission was signified by a 
black bomb painted on her 

"The losses were so high in '42 
and '43 thai it was pure luck to 
make it," said Kessler in a letter.

as being one of the major reasons 
for the lack of participation in 
college organizations and events.

should "point out the advantages 
of being involved." No action was 
taken on the matter.

continued to hold fast. She was the 
only Flying Fortress of the 
original 368th Bomb Squadron to 
see the end of the war. 

Grounded briefly 

Kessler flew on her three times 
including her first bomb run on 
the Five Lilies Carriege works in 
Lille, France on Oct. 8, 1942. She 
sustained severe damage to her 
main wing span during the 
mission and was grounded a short 
time due to lack of parts. 

She was one of the legendary 
12,731 B-17 Flying Fortresses 
rushed off the assembly line after 

most of the existing B-17's were 
destroyed by the Japanese at the 
start of the war. 

Kessler was aboard the Eager 
Beaver during one of the toughest 
missions of the war: a low level 
attack on the sub pens at St. 
Nazaire, France on Nov. 17, 1942. 
100 holes in one 

W. C. Ormond of Virginia, a 
radio operator on the Eager 
Beaver, said that when the plane 
returned to her base there were 
over lOO holes in one wing and 
almost as many in the other, 
according to a July 8, 1976 issue of 

the Williamsport Sun-Gazette. 

During their last mission 
together on Dec. 12, 1942, Kessler 
shot down the first enemy plane 
from the Eager Beaver. Four 
more were downed by the Eager 
Beaver. After each occasion, a 
Maltese cross was stenciled on 
her side. 

First or second 

The first B-17 bombing of 
Germany was on Jan. 23, 1943 
over Wilhelmshaven. The Eager 
Beaver was either the second or 
third plane over the target. 

Two engines returned her to 
England after the bombing of 
Brest, Germany on April 16, 1943. 

Subsequently, she was retired 
from combat duty and returned to 
the States. 

The Eager Beaver was sold for 
educational purposes to the 
Williamsport Technical Institute 
in 1946 for $350. She was valued at 
between $250,000 to $350,000. 

The flight from Patterson, Ohio 
to Williamsport was her last. 

She's a queen 

She was scrapped in 1952, but 
not forgotten.

Government's policy to sponsor

Allen said if there is no demand 
for a dance, one should not be 
held. He stated the situation 
should be looked into.

Health Form Discussed 

The introduction of a student 
health form was discussed by Dr. 
David M. Heiney, assistant dean 
for student and career develop- 

According to Dr. Heiney, this 
form would replace the present 
system, which includes a doctor's 
examination. There is a fee, but it 
would be lower than the cost for 
an examination. Dr. Heiney said 
he felt that the health form should 
be a requirement before 
registration since many students 
do not hand a health record in. 

Many colleges are now using 
this system, he added. Results of

During the reading of the

Beatle Reunion 

So it's time to end these pitiful 
bent seances of dreaming for a 
Beatle reunion and oohing at the 
sight of pretty Petey Frampton or 
gasping at the horrible dinner 
manners of Ted Nugent. 

And do you know why? Because 
these boys are good and a few 
"big shots" like Warner Brothers 
know it. 

Yes sir, it's now time to 
acknowledge the Sex Pistols as 
THE group of the 70's and be 
happy for it. 

And so you want some big 
names to back that statement, 
eh? "Crawdaddy," "The Rolling 
Stone," Circus," and "Creem," to 
name ^ few, have all scanned the 

Pistols' first album "Never Mind staring eyes, and thick black hair 
the Bollocks, Here's the Sex standing on end. It can also mean 
Pistols" with favorable praise, a person resembling such a doll. 

The lads must be doing something 

It's atK)ut time, though. After 
waiting for nearly a year to hear 
what the Pistols were all about, 
top 40 only amounted to silly 
dribble throwaways like "I'm In 
You" and "Car Wash" with no 
musical backbone at all unless 
one has a hankering for playing 
musical chairs. 

And all that stuff that the 
Pistols are really gross, gross, 
gross! Really? The Stones aren't 
any contenders for the "Media 
Creampuff" award either. Come 
to think of it, neither is "Alice 
Cooper," "The Who," and "Led 

While these groups get their 
giggles from smashing other 
people's properties, including 
whole hotels and cars, the Pistols 
simply sneer at the press and spit 
on them. 

And take Kiss for example with 
Gene Simmons spitting blood 
while on stage. Now that's poor 

Kiss Concert 

I've often wondered if people go 
to a "Kiss" concert to hear the 
group or see the stage show . 

There'll be flack on this, but 
seriously, take away the fancy 
outfits, knock all the over zealous 
lighting out, and demolish the fog 
machines and then look up at a 
few of the big timers and what do 
you see? A few superstars who 
are so "naked" they could be 
jailed for fraud. 

Nope, my money is going to ride 
with the "Sex Pistols." 

And so, when it all boils down to 
it, "Never Mind the Bollocks . . ." 
could become the album of the 
decade if only enough people will 
listen to it instead of succumbing 
to twisted "gossip." 

Of course, the Pistols will be 
laughing all the way to the bank.

Missing carts prove costly 

By Terry Rang 
Staff Writer 



Can you imagine carrying 
a week's supply of groceries 
in your arms? 

It seems that shopping 
carts are "disappearing." 
The West Fourth Street 
Super Saver's loss is 100 to 
120 carts yearly. 

Carts are seen lying in 
snow banks, overturned on 
sidewalks, or being used as 
go-carts to push people 
around instead of groceries. 

According to Super Saver's 
manager Charles L. 
O'Connor, shopping carts 
cost $65 each. 

To prevent this long-time 
problem, the Weis Market on 
West Third Street put posts 
around the pick-up area with 
a space large enough for a 
person to walk through. 

Ted Lentz, assistant 
grocery manager at the Weis 
Market, said their carts cost 
approximately $48 each. 
Since installation of the 
posts, no carts have been 
stolen or borrowed, he said.

Attempts made 
to aid housing 

Dr. William H. Feddersen has 
been meeting with Williamsport 
City Council and Mayor Daniel P. 
Kirby about filing an application 
to the Housing and Urban 
Development Agency (HUD) in 

If HUD approves the ap- 
plication for funding, the money 
will be used to purchase property 
near campus for housing, ac- 
cording to Dr. Feddersen. 

The city would renovate the 
property and then sell it to the 
college or a private developer. 

This would provide housing for 
approximately 400 students. 

Dr. Feddersen pointed out that 
housing is the number one 
problem at the college. 

This proposal, he said, is 
another attempt to alleviate 
housing problems. 

He also said that the college 
loses 100 to 200 students yearly 
because of some marginal or 
substandard housing facilities.

According to Murray, there is a 
potential for 72 senators to 
represent the different curricula. 
There were 15 senators present at

members are Charles B. Miller, a

technology student from Howard; 
Mary C. Jacobson, an accounting 
student from Westfield; and

Interested parties examine

During the past year, 

examination of traffic regulations 
on campus was conducted by 
interested parties including 
faculty and students. 

As a result of that study the 
college has its first "official" 
traffic policy. 

David P. Siemsen, chairman of 
the facilities and safety com-

The penalty structure has been

Survey results are 

Are you in this photo? 

Results of the student survey 
conducted through The 
SPOTLIGHT prior to Christmas 
recess were considered 
"somewhat disappointing," said 
Thomas C. Shoff. college coun- 

Eighty-six students responded 
to the survey which was con- 
ducted by the counseling office. Of 
those responding, 71 were men. 
Most were certificate, non- 
sponsor students who were in 
their first or second semester. 

The questions dealt with in the 
survey were broken down into five 
major areas, including college 
facilities, faculty, student pro- 
grams, costs, and college policy. 
25 percent "strongly agree" 

In answering the survey, most 
students were neutral or respond- 
ed positively. There were few 
questions in which more than 25 
percent of the students responded 
"strongly agree" or "strongly 

Four of the questions received 
an answer of "strongly agree." 
They were; (1) Generally, in- 
structors try to relate coursework 
to real life, (2) I could not have 
come to WACC without financial 
aid, (3) I have participated in 
extra-curricular activities in high 
school, but have not participated 
at WACC, (4)1 feel my high school 
education was adequate for what I 
needed to attend WACC. 

There were ttiree questions to 
which students strongly 
disagreed. They were; (1) shop 
facilities are adequate, (2) costs 
for books and tools are reasonable 

GS student

Sharon L. Stout, 21, a general 
studies student, was found dead 
Saturday at 3 p.m. along the 
Susquehanna River in Porter 
Township. Officially, her death 
has been listed as self-inflicted. 

Miss Stout was found, frozen but 
fully clothed, by state police in her 
'57 International pickup. Officers 
in a state police helicopter had 
spotted the vehicle parked along 
the river. 

She had been living with her 
grandparents, Mr. and Mrs.

live in Louisiana, police said.

parking would help solve the 
parking problem. 

The survey also included a 
question on why students came to 
the college. Students were asked 
to check no more than two 
reasons. Eighty-three of those 
answering the survey suggested 
they came because the college 
offered a specific program that 
they were interested in. Other 
reasons included low cost and 
closeness to home. 

Counselors Not Surprised 

Shoff said the counselors were 
not surprised by the responses 
and that it "tended to reinforce 
the thinking in the student 
development area that students 
need to have more com- 
munications capability into the

College hires coordinator to develop 
solution to student housing problem 


By Elaine Helm 
Staff Writer 

Developing a system to "coor- 
dinate housing between students 
and landlords" is the main objec- 
tive of Housing Coordinator Mark 
W. Dorey. 

Dorey has been hired under the 
Comprehensive Employment 
Training Act (CETA) to serve as 
housing coordinator at the col- 
lege. The position currently is a 
temporary one, lasting for six 
months, but according to Dr. 
David M. Heiney, assistant dean 
of student and career develop- 
ment, it "hopefully" may be ex- 

According to Dr. Heiney, Dorey 
will be working on several pro- 
jects concerning the housing pro- 
blem at the college. These will in- 
clude improving the existing 
housing list, surveying students 
and landlords about their "needs 
and concerns", completing the 
housing booklet and exploring 
alternatives to housing. 
Plans to explore 

Some other areas Dorey said he 
plans to explore include the 
"feasibility" of co-ed housing and 
additional housing for female 

The new housing coordinator 
said he hopes to "promote an 
acute awareness" among 
students that much of the respon- 
sibility in housing lies with them 
and in making their desires 
known to their landlords. As it 
stands now, Dorey said, "a few 
are making it bad for the rest." 

Dorey said he has an awareness 
of the housing condition as he liv- 
ed in college housing while atten- 
ding the college as a business 
management student. He 
graduated from the college in 
May, 1977. 

Before Dorey assumed the posi- 
tion of housing coordinator, the 
college had no one in charge of 
housing problems since June, 

1976. At that time, the position of 
housing director was eliminated, 
according to Dr. Heiney. 

Wolfe ex-director 

Up until that time Daniel Wolfe 
had served as housing director at 
the college. According to Dr. 
Heiney, Wolfe was hired when the 
college leased the Hoover Dorms 
on Campbell St. to supervise the 
dorms and handle housing pro- 
blems. When the dorms were sold 
in 1976, Wolfe's position was 

The new housing coordinator, 
who will be working with the Stu- 
dent Government Association and 
the housing committee to improve 
the existing housing situation, is 
located in the Admissions Office, 
Room 104, Klump Academic 

Snow removal 
takes 96 hours 

While many area communities, 
and even the state, are cogitating 
the question of how to make ends 
meet without over spending snow 
removal budgets, the college's 
physical plant budget is in "pretty 
good shape," according to Ralph 
Lowe, director.

Winter Weekend includes 
13 non-student participants 

The SGA-sponsored Winter Weekend is scheduled for 
Feb. 17, 18 and 19. The weekend— a ski trip to Killington, 
Vt.— is limited to 80 participants. 

The sign-up list is full, with 18 people on a waiting list. 

This Winter Weekend is not only limited to a certain 
number, but includes 13 non-students, who apparently 
have been given priority over some WACC students. 

Winter Weekend is a college activity. The waiting 
students have been dealt a dirty hand. 

Non-students have no place at Winter Weekend. If SGA 
senators wish to allow this, it should only be after all in- 
terested students have been permitted to sign up. 

The non-students must pay an additional $20. What 
about students who have already paid an mandatory ac- 
tivity fee? 

It is high time SGA rearranged their priorities.

To the Editor: 

I am a second semester general 
studies student at WACC and I 
have been reading your newspap- 
er since its first publication in the 

I want to make it clear that I 
have never been to a' student 
government meeting before, but I 
feel as if I am kept well up to 
date on all of the meetings, since 
your paper seems to cover the 
SGA's every move. 

What I don't understand is: Is 
there a war going on? Since both 
The SPOTLIGHT and SGA are 
student organizations, I would 
think they would be working to- 
gether to improve conditions and 
set up new alternatives for the 
students at WACC, instead of at- 
tacking each other. 

During the fall semester I at- 
tempted to organize a women's 
basketball team, since WACC 
only offers one other interscholas- 
tic sport for women. 

I went to the newspaper staff 
and asked if some coverage could 
be done on this subject. I gave 
information as to the interest 
being shown and was told it would 
be taken care of. 

Well, I'm still reading the news- 
paper, and I'm still reading about 
the ski trip and unpaid phone bills, 
but I've yet to read anything 
about the women's basketball 

By the way, we did form a club 
team and we are doing quite well. 
If our team gets funded as a 
regular college team next year, 
I think it will be the first in the 
history of WACC— and we certain- 
ly didn't read that in The SPOT- 

Donna J. Tallman 
General Studies 
To the Editor: 

I think the decision to reschedule 
the two "snow days" into our 
vacation days is ridiculous. 

The statement in The SPOT- 
LIGHT about the college being 
obligated to maintain their sched- 
uled number of days is crazy. 
WACC already goes a consider- 
able number of days too many. 

Why is it that other colleges 
start their spring semester after 
WACC does and end their semes- 
ter approximately the same time? 
It seems quite unfair. As far as 
the two "snow days" go— I say 
forget them.

would they finish themselves? 
They could probably continue the 
way they are now— it wouldn't be 

No, the government is not the 
answer. \Wiy don't we appeal to 
everybody's sense of duty and ask 
them to commit suicide? Those 
that are perfect could even fur-

That would only be a partial 
solution, however. Being only

to commit suicide would be

There is an alternate solution.

celebrate their blessings. 

They could adopt Will Rogers' 
line: "I've never met a man I 
didn't like." This shouldn't be too

People are, of course, only

are more of a mistake than 
others, but that can't be helped.

. . .What's 


clip the form and drop it off 

When we think about resources, we usually think about buildings, 
equipment, and money. But, the most important resource we have is time. The 
minutes, hours, days, and weeks that all of us spend at WACC determine what 
the College is now and what it will become. 

In order to make the best use of our time, we have to plan. We have to 
decide what our goals are before we can begin to work toward them. Goals 
provide a direction for our work; they remind us of why we are here and what 
we should be doing. 

The College's Institutional Goals for 1977-1978 are listed below. In ad- 
dition, the person{s) responsible for the goal and a progress report for each 
goal is listed. 

The gools are broken into four general areas: external affairs (work with 
the community and outside organizations), institutional affairs (work related to 
WACC as a whole— facilities, governance, etc.), educational affairs (work 
related to the instructional programs of the College), and administrative affairs 
(work related to the College's systems and operating procedures). 

These goals are very general — they give an indication of what the results 
of the year's work should be, without going into detail on how the results 
should be achieved. 

WACC is now beginning to plan for the 1978-1979 acadfemic year. This 
year, we'd like your help. As students you are the most important people at 
WACC. Our primary goal is to make WACC a better place for you. 

We'd like your ideas on how we should do this. What areas do you feel we 
should emphasize during the 1978-79 year? Think about the College as it is 
now. How could it be improved? What results should we work for next year? 
Should we continue to work on some of the goals listed below? Are there other 
goals that you feel are irnportant? Use your 'nnaginatiain. We don'1 know what 
we can do until we try. 

Think about it. Then, take a few minutes to write down your ideas on the 
form below. You may decide that we- should continue to work toward one or 
more of the goals listed for 1977-1978. If so, put the number of the goal on the 
form (I. -A, II. -B., etc.). Or you may think of new goals. Write them in a 
statement similar to the goals listed below. If you need more room than is 
given on the form, you may attach a sheet of paper. 

To make it convenient for you, you may clip the form below and drop it off 
at any of the following offices: 

— Earth Science Campus: Division Director's Office 

— Parkes Automotive Building: Division Director's Office 

— Cromar Building: Bookstore 

— Klump Academic Center: Admissions & Records Office (Rm. 104) or 
Community Ed Office (Rm. 209)— there will be boxes in these two offices in 
which you can drop the forms 

—Unit 6 — President's Office 

Or, send the form to the President's Office in Unit 6 through the Intra- 

The results of this survey will be used as we consider our goals for next 
year. I oppreciate your thought and ideas. They can help us make WACC a 
better place for you and for the students who follow you.

Diane L. Confer and Lori A.

their recent excursion to New

"It was so fascinating," said 
Miss Confer, a general studies

"I'd like to spend more time 
there," said Miss Thompson, a 
business management student 
from Lock Haven. 

The two girls, along with four 
other Urban Sociology students 
and Dr. Richard Sahn, instructor, 
went to New York City the 
weekend of January 28-29. This 
trip was designed by Dr. Sahn to 
allow his students to see con- 
ditions of urban living. 

Both girls agreed the trip was a

Federal grant provides funds 
for forestry program sawmill 

A federal grant of $28,000 has 
allowed the college to become one 
of the few community colleges to 
have a sawmill in operation. 

The sawmill, which is located 
behind the Schneebeli Building 
near Allenwood, will be used as 
part of the forestry program. 

According to Budd Zaner, 
forestry instructor, adding the 

sawmill to the program will not 
make students "proficient," but it 
will expose them to the workings 
of a sawmill. 

Zaner also said that a program 
for sawmill instruction is being

Poorly positioned snow 
creates visibility problems 

Another major winter storm dumped 8.6 inches of 
snow in the Williamsport area last Monday. 

The college closed Tuesday for a third "snow day", 
but reopened at 4 p.m. 

Students with Tuesday night classes were fortunate 
to find campus lots, once again, plowed to the fullest 
possible degree. 

Tuesday, as in the past, the physical plant employees 
worked diligently to provide adequate parking. However, 
one problem has come to our attention. 

Much of the plowed snow has been piled at lot exits, 
causing visibility problems. These snowbanks are a 
hazard to anyone exiting the lots, particularly on West 
Third Street. 

This excess snow should be removed by dump trucks 
to prevent any undue accidents. 

In the future, excess snow should be removed or 
plowed to the back of the lots, where it will not obstruct 
driver visibility.

cessful Mary Tyler Moore series. 

When the MTM series went off 
the air, Grant left Minneapolis 
and relocated in Los Angeles 
where he exchanged the WJM 
newsroom for the city desk of the 
Los Angeles Tribune. 

Exchanged roles 

At the same time, Asner ex- 
changed his co-starring role in the 
comedy show for a starring role in 
his own dramatic series . 

The move was a good one for 
both Grant and Asner. Grant now 
has the chance to be a serious 
newsman with competent co- 
workers in the newsroom and 
Asner now has the opportunity to 

perform in a serious role and to 
prove what a versatile actor he 
really is. 

Important issues 

The Lou Grant series, aired 
Monday night at 10:(X) p.m. on 
CBS, has dealt thus far with such 
important issues as wife beating 
and religious cults. Each week, 
Grant as city editor, and his staff 
encounter real problems faced in 
the competitive world of a 
metropolitan newspaper. 

No longer does the veteran 
newsman share billing with a 
bumbling anchorman, a balding 
newswriter, and "little Mary 
Richards" who spends much of 
her time hunting a man. The 
episodes have real and dramatic. 

So, if you're tuning in to see the 
old Lou Grant, you may be sur- 
prised; he's changed.

By Linda Springman 
Staff Writer 

We were reminded recently that 
it has been a year since Roots 
came on the scene. And oh, how it 
came— leaving a lasting im- 
pression of one kind or another on 
the millions who watched the 
eight-night telecast. 

The theme has been interpreted 
many ways, but the main idea 
seemed to be the great injustice 
that was done the blacks who 
were brought here into slavery. 

This is true. It was an injustice, 
but my mind wanders to another 
people who were— and still are- 
being treated unjustly. 

They were not brought here 
from anywhere, but were in a 

sense, taken away from their 

I'm speaking, of course, of the 
American Indians. 

Their men were killed, their 
homes were burned, their women 
were violated and their children 
learned to hate. 

They were driven from their 
land by whites and are now forced 
to live on reservations in poverty. 

I'm wondering if and when 
someone will come along for the 
American Indians. 

What the Indians need is to have 
the "closet crusaders" emerge 
and campaign in earnest for the 
equal rights of the true 

Woman searches for herself 
in a crazy, mixed-up world 

By Candy Friends 
Staff Writer 

Judith Rossner's novel, 
"Looking for Mr. Goodbar," was 
an astounding tale of a woman's 
search for herself in a mixed-up 

Theresa Dunn, the main 
character, is of Irish Catholic 
descent. Having polio as a child 
seemed to haunt her through the 
remainder of her short life. 

The book does a good job of 
showing Theresa's frustrations 
and anxieties. She detaches 
herself from her family and has 
no real friends to speak of. The 
only people she really com- 
municates with, besides her deaf 

students, are the men she picks up 
and sleeps with. Actually, she 
doesn't really communicate with 
them, usually only seeing them 

The movie was recently 
released with Diane Keaton 
portraying Theresa. Her acting 
was well worth an Academy 
Award, in this writer's opinion, 
but the movie and the book were 
very different. 

The book is worth reading, but 
don't be shocked by the woman's 
sexual encounters or her attitude 
toward life. And, don't be sur- 
prised by the questions you ask 
yourself at the end of the book. 

Styx illusion has vision 

By Adrianne Flynn 
Staff Writer 

The grandest illusion to appear 
from the River Styx is the "Grand 
Illusion" by Styx. 

The melodic pattern woven in 
this new album shows the true 
Styx style. Filled with brilliant 
guitar leads, versatile vocals, and 
stunning special effects, the 
album is one of the best ever 
turned out by this group. 

But far more spellbinding than 
the talented musical arrangement 
or the overall clarity of the album, 
are the elusive lyrics. 

Each song, with the possible 
exception of "The Grand Finale," 
breaks a piece of life, divides and 
analyzes it, then advises and 
warns all listeners of what's in 
store for them. 

Visions from the past, present 
and future; reflections on success 
and ambition; and even a glimpse 
into the lives of "superstars" is 

woven elo()uently around the 
vibrant music. 

Though Styx style is more tame 
than that of many of their 
associates, rock and roll is there 
in the constant rhythms and 

This is especially evident in 
"Miss America," probably the 
best song on the album. The title 
song "The Grand Illusion," and 
the airway's hit single "Come Sail 
Away" are not far behind. 

In the characteristic Styx 
manner, "The Grand Illusion" is 
a hit and more than that it's ahve 
. . .with life. 

To try where there is little hope 
is to risk failure. Not to try 
guarantees it.

something for his own good.

By Dave Hown 
StaH Writer 

The frisbee club is soaring 

The club, originally started in 
1970, has been inactive the past 
few years. 

Jon C. Brunke, a mechanical 
drafting student from Bloom- 
sburg, is instigating the revival of 
the club. 

According to Brunke, Dr. 
Daniel J. Doyle is temporarily 
acting as advisor for "the sole 
reason of getting the club going" 
but the club is still looking for an 

"The club is for people who do 
not know how to throw as well as 

for people who do, ' said Brunke. 

The meetings will include in- 
struction in the various ways to 
throw and catch a frisbee, along 
with the principles behind them. 

The meetings are scheduled bi- 
weekly on Thursdays in Room 
128, Unit 6 from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. 
The next meeting will be Feb. 16. 

The club has 25 members and 
welcomes anyone who is in- 
terested to join. 

In the first meeting on Feb. 2, 
the club elected its officers. Those 
elected were: Brunke as 
president: Daniel E. Osborn, an 
advertising art student from 
Williamsport, vice president; 
Arturo R. Zillerueld, a 
mechanical drafting student from 
Shamokin, treasurer: Robert A. 
Booker, a mechanical drafting 
student from Bloomsburg, 

Any student who wishes to join, 
or any faculty member who would 
like to become an advisor "with 
minimal responsibility," can

to 4 p.m. in Unit 6, Room 133.

By Stu Karschner 
Staff Writer 

Playing outstanding ball last 
weekend, the basketball team 
beat Northampton County Area 
Community College (NCACC), 80 
to 71, and lost to Montgomery 
County Community College 

On Saturday, Feb. 4, the college 
team dropped a close one to only 
once defeated MCCC. The 
Wildcats, whose record fell to six 
wins, 11 losses overall and four 
wins, eight losses in the league, 
were down by one at halftime, 34 
to 33. ' 

They were outscored in the 
second, 35 to 29. 

Robert W, Lehman, a carpentry 
student from Galeton, led the 
team in scoring, 14 points, and 
rebounds, 14. 

The team had two other scorers 
in double figures. James S.

department with five. 

Friday's Game . . . 

In the Wildcats win on Friday, 
Feb. 3, they took the lead over 
NCACC early in the game and 
never gave it up. 

The team had 24 assists and

to be made on Feb. 20 ^"^^^ '^'"'^ «^"^'^" 

The first "Canadian Con- 
nection" will be made during the 
week of Feb. 20, according to 
Edmond A. Watters, III, dean of 
postsecondary instructional 

Eleven members of the 
college's faculty and staff will be 
visiting the Sault College of Ap- 
plied Arts and Technology in 
Ontario, Canada, during the 
winter recess. A second "con- 
nection" will follow from Feb. 27 
to March 3 when members of the 
Sault College faculty and staff will 
be visiting the college, said 

All expenses for the trip will be 
provided by the college, said 
Watters. "It is part of our staff 
development program," he ad- 

Accommodations Provided 

Accommodations, said Watters, 
will be provided by the faculty 
and staff at Sault College. When 
the Canadians visit Williamsport, 
accommodations will be provided 
by the college faculty and staff. 

The group is planning to leave 
Williamsport the morning of 
Sunday, Feb. 19, according to 
Watters. He said the group will 
travel part way, stay overnight 
and continue to the college the 
next day. The group will leave the 
college, Saturday, Feb. 24 and 
return to Williamsport, said

All of the logs processed at the

materials and equipment. 

other activities have been planned 
for the group. A social event in- 
cluding ice skating and 
tobogganning and informal 
discussions have been scheduled. 
Also the group will observe the 
local industry, business and social 
services in the area, added 

"We envision this as the first 

step in establishing a permanent 

exchange program with the Sault 

College," Watters said. 

Jan. Meeting 

On Jan. 26, a meeting was held 
in Walters' office concerning the 
trip. Eleven people signed up for 
the excursion, according to 
Watters. They are: William C. 
Bradshaw, director of post- 
secondary cooperative education; 
Robert K. Most, psychology in- 
structor; Donald R. Nibert, 
assistant professor forestry 
technology; Ramon H. Pickering, 
automotive instructor; Frank L. 
Porter, associate professor of 
English. Also, Dr. Richard Sahn, 
social science instructor; William 
L. Stevens, assistant professor of 
service and operation of heavy 
equipment; James 0. Tule, dean 
of secondary instructional ser- 
vices; Bernard C. Wilhams, 
assistant professor of welding; 
Donald 0. Young Sr., business 
and computer science instructor 
and Rodman H. Perry, 
automotive instructor. 

Resulted From Presentation 

The exchange program resulted 
from a presentation which 
Watters made to some Canadian 
community colleges last summer. 
The presentation enabled Watters 
to meet some of the Canadian 
faculty, including Doug Heggart, 
president of the faculty 
association of Sault College. 

Heggart and Watters discussed 
the possibilities of an exchange 

"Both of us wanted to do it," 
said Watters. 

Sault College was established in 
1965 and is located in Sault Ste. 
Marie, Ontario, Canada. The 
college offers a two or three year 
degree depending on the 
program, according to the college 
catalog. Other differences bet- 
ween Sault and the college are— 
Sault provides a residence 
complex for students, and dif- 
ferent programs are offered and 
individualized instruction system 
in certain courses is offered.

New food course proposed; 
21 days to be spent abroad 

A 3 credit International Food 
and Nutritional Care course has 
been proposed by Mrs. Vivian 
Moon, instructor for the food and 
hospitality division of the college. 

The course, which is now before 
the curriculum committee, would 
stimulate interest, increase 
knowledge, and open doors for 
students at associate, un- 
dergraduate and graduate levels. 

Scheduled for spring, the course 
could be used to gain credits, yet 
would not interfere with a 
student's regular program of 
study. ' 

It is hoped that this program 
would also stimulate state-wide 
interest in the college and for 
students to pursue a career in 
foods and nutrition. 

The 21-<iay course, to be spent 
traveling abroad in Britain, 
France and Germany, is open to 
30 students per instructor. 

Enrollment should be concluded 
by the end of this month in order 
to complete all passport and 
financial arrangements. 

The college costs will be 
determined by the arrangements 
to be made with the instructor. 

Participants in this course will 
be studying management of 
quantity food in hospitals, 
schools, restaurants and homes of 
each country. They will learn how 
to prepare at least one recipe 
from each country and find out 
how governments are involved in 
food production and distribution. 

Departure has been scheduled 
for May 22 from New York City.

Bloodmobile nets 
260 pints first day 

Two-hundred and sixty pints of blood were collected last 
Wednesday in the first day of a two-day visit to the college by 
the Bloodmobile according to Nancy Elias, nurse here at the 

Jan Oden, executive director of the Red Cross in this area, 
said "We have heard several comments by the nurses from 
Wilkes-Barre who travel with the Bloodmobile program about 
the students here. They are quite impressed with their maturity 

Miss Oden also said the Red Cross assisted 25 students 
made homeless recently by a fire at the Revco Drug Store in the 
city with food, clothing and a grant of $2,500 that does not have 
to be repaid. Those same students then in turn, voluntarily 
helped at or donated blood at the Bloodmobile. 

A goal of 500 pints was hoped for at the end of the two-day 


SGA joins association of colleges 

The Student Government 
Association senators voted at last 
Tuesday's meeting in favor of the 
college joining the Pennsylvania 
Association of Community 
Colleges (PACC), an educational 
organization concerned with the 
betterment of community 
colleges in the state. 

A 7-5 vote passed the motion 
which decided the senate's ap- 
proval of the college's mem- 
bership in the organization. 

Joe Sweeney, executive 
director of PACC, formerly the 
Pennsylvania Community College 
Student Association (PCCSA), 
was guest speaker at the meeting. 
He outlined the organization's 
goals and told what PACC is doing 
presently. He stated one of the 

primary goals of PACC is 
"leadership training" in student 

The major objectiveb tlie" 
organization is attempting to 
achieve at the present time in- 
clude, according to Sweeney, a 
"practical plan to get students on 
the (college) board of trustees"; 
researching rationales and 
support of a college transfer 
credit bill now in the state Senate. 
That bill would make transfer 
from a community college to a 
four-year school much easier; 
and visiting other community 
colleges in hopes of recruiting 
memberships for PACC. 

David A. Allen, a graphic arts 
student from Ivyland, questioned 
Sweeney on exactly what the 

organization can do for the 
college. Sweeney replied that 
"nothing specific " can be done at 

me pffe^em. »ui a iu van w uuiw 
in the future. 

Sweeney added that he feels 
community colleges have a 
"really excellent potential." A 
campus can be used as a resource 
for different projects" in the 
community, he said. 

Scott K. Hayes (an SGA senator 
and a general studies student) 
from Williamsport, made a

in the organization. 

It was argued by Leo A. 
Murray, SGA senator, and Alfred 
S. Kaufman 3rd, SGA 
parlimentarian, to test the idea on 
the student body before taking a 

formal vote on the matter.

from voting because he was new 
and unfamiliar with the issue.

Letter of protest claims 
lack of communication 

Fire victims allocated 
money from Red Cross 

A letter from Gamma Epsilon 
Tau president David A. Allen 
protesting the lack of com- 
munication within the Student 
Government Association was the 
highlight of the Feb. 28 meeting. 

Allen read his letter of protest 
near the close of the two hour 
meeting, to SGA officers, senators 
and members. 

The protest stemmed from the 
SGA scheduling of a dance on the 
same night a program was 
planned by the Special Events 
Committee (SEC). The letter 
stated the failure of com- 
munication within SGA "severely 
hurt the magic show sponsored by 
the SEC." 

Allen also argued that the 
scheduling of Red Delicious for 
the SGA dance could have "ad- 
verse, possibly damaging, effects 
upon another group's well 
planned intentions." He was 
referring to Gamma Epsilon 
Tau's (GET) planned concert this 
past weekend, featuring Red

attempt was made to contact GET

The American Red Cross has 
allocated nearly $2, '^ to aid 2^ 
students who were victims of a 
Feb. 25 fire in Center City Mall in 

The money was provided to aid 
students with their immediate 
need for food, clothing, and rent 
money, according to Dr. David M. 
Heiney, assistant dean for student 
and career development. 

According to Mark W. Dorey, 
housing coordinator for the 
college, he has compiled a list of 
vacant housing for the students to 
use in finding a place to live. 

Dorey also said that the 

Salvation Army is assisting the 
students with donations of fur- 
niture and clothing. 

Students are also having 
problems replacing books lost in 
the fire. Currently, they are using 
library copies or desk copies of 
faculty members. According to 
Dr. Heiney, the college library is 
purchasing some of the books 
from the bookstore at the request 
of the students and faculty 
members. Dr. Heiney also said 
the college is investigating the 
possibility of loaning students the 
money to purchase the books and 
allowing them until the end of the 
semester to pay back the loans.

Third Street traffic 
nets close encounter 

When Barry McMurtrie, a business accounting student from 
Bellefonte, fell to the clammy pavement on West Third Street in 
front of Unit 6 on Friday, Feb. 17, a little girl fought desperately to j 
hold back tears welling in her eyes. 

Ultimately, she lost. It was probably the first time she had seen 
someone hurt, let alone struck by a car. 

But will it be the last? Time after time, students have had 
numerous close encounters with speeding automobiles . . . cars 
moving too fast for a campus divided by a major street. 

The SPOTLIGHT acknowledged this problem in its Sept. 27 
issue, but received no noticeable support. 
Now, someone else has been hit. 

It must be noted that there are traffic lights located at both ends 
of the 1000 block, at West Third and Park Streets. 

However, students cannot be expected to march to crossing 
lights some distance away Tthere are icy intersections, cars turning 
right on red, and the need to attend classes on time. 

After all, cigarette smoking is considered dangerous to the 
user's health. The smoker knows that, but strict federal laws sup- 
port that fact, which in turn is posted on every pack. 

Shouldn't the same go for West Third Street? Shouldn't there be 
speed reduction signs posted far in advance, to warn the motorist to 
slow down? 

A logical solution is to contact The Pennsylvania 
Department of Transportation (PennDOT) and suggest that Penn- 
DOT install speed reduction signs between the 900 and 1000 blocks of 
West Third Street. This would encompass the extremely hazardous 
territory of the campus. 

Students are here to learn, not to become a statistical target. 

Whadd'ya say . . . 

What qualities do you feel 
make a good instructor?

To the Editor: 

I would like to make an inquiry 
on how a club gets an an- 
nouncement put in the Bulletin 
Board of The SPOTLIGHT. 

It was my understanding that 
an activity announcement, 
submitted before the deadline, 
would automatically be published 
as part of the Bulletin Board. 

I am referring to an an- 
nouncement the WACC Band 
submitted on Jan. 31 concerning a 
skating party held at Skateland on 
Feb. 7. 

The announcement was sub- 
mitted to a SPOTLIGHT reporter 
far before the deadline, then 
consequently not published. 

If my understanding is in- 
correct, I would like to know 
exactly what the policy con- 
cerning the Bulletin Board is. 

If my understanding is correct, 
then I would like to know why it 
was not published. 

Also, as discussed at the Feb. 9 
Interclub Council meeting, it 

seems that other clubs have 
received the same treatment, and 
they should be interested in your 
explanation, too.

On February 16th, the Special 
Events Committee, a group 
comprised of faculty, ad- 
ministrators, and students, 
sponsored a program of magic 
and illusions featuring Jack 
Adams, a nationally-known en- 

I think it safe to say that the 110 
people in the audience enjoyed 
Mr. Adams' performance, for he 
was clever and thoroughly en- 
tertaining. It was quite disap- 
pointing both to us on the com- 
mittee and to Mr. Adams that 
there were so few in the audience. 

What is really disturbing in this 
particular instance is the fact that 
SGA scheduled a dance at the 
same time. Admittedly, not 
everyone at the dance would have 
attended Mr. Adams' show had 


there been no dance to compete „, ,. , 

with. But sufficient numbers of Shouting makes 
students were taken away by that munication louder, 
dance, for in the previous two 
shows last fall we averaged 
between 325 and 400 people. 

Since the Special Events 
Committee set the dates for these 
programs one year in advance 
and since approximately % of the 
funds to support these programs 
comes from the student activities 
fee, one would reasonably sup- 
pose that SGA would want to get 
the best possible return from its 

Why SGA chose to schedule the 
dance against this program 
remains unclear. I hope that for 
the next event-WACC BLUE- 
GRASS '78 on March 16th- 
the SGA will give this its fullest 
support. If not their support, I 
hope that at least SGA will not 
schedule some other event at the 
same time.

Canadian Connection complete 

By Chuck Tooley 
Staff Writer 

Canadian Sault College faculty 
member, Oscar Pudgmaitus, 
speaking to various classes in the 
Klump Academic Center last 
week, said "Man is the head, the 
woman is the neck, and anywhere 
the neck turns, the head follows." 

However, Pudgmaitus, who 
lives in Sault Saint Marie, On- 
tario, spoke seriously when 
dealing with Canada's future and 
U.S. relations. 

Pudgmaitus frequently men- 
tioned problems with Quebec and 
its possible secession from 

"What will we do then?" he 


According to Pudgmaitus, there 
are 9 million Anglo-Saxons in 
Canada dominating the financial 
and business structures, 7 million 
French who are mostly con- 
centrated in Quebec, and another 

6 million making up Canada's 
ethnic group. 

Delving into a discussion of the 

7 million French citizens, 
Pudgmaitus added that in the 
early 60's, French citizens left 
Quebec to pursue education. Upon 

returning, they found no skilled 
employment due to Anglo-Saxon 
filling job vacancies. 

In dealing with the population, 
Pudgmaitus mentioned that 92 
percent of Canada's people live 
within a strip 300 miles along the 
U.S. border. 

A few small pockets of dense 
population and pockets of minor 
population is "a cause of 
disparity," he said. 

Spread Westward 

He then mentioned the spread 
Westward in the U.S. by saying 
"Canada never faced that 

Pudgmaitus spoke briefly about 
Canada's government by saying, 
"We are not afraid of a central 
government telling us what to do. 
Whether that's good or bad, I 
don't know." 

He said the government handles 
all medical care and when 
questioned on Canadian taxes, 
Pudgmaitus gave one example 
dealing with income tax. In 
Canada, if someone's annual 
income is $100,000, the govern- 
ment receives around $83,000 in 

Pudgmaitus closed his 
discussion with questions from 
the audience. 

Eight Canadian visitors from 
Sault College of Applied Arts and 
Technology in Ontario, Canada, 
were at the Williamsport Area 
Community College last week. 

The Canadian visit completed 
the second part of the "Canadian 
Connection" which Edmond A. 
Walters, III, dean of post- 
secondary instructional services 
and Douglas Heggart, president 
of the faculty association of Sault 
College developed. 

Members of the Canadian group 
were: Ed Caple, instructor of 
machine shop, Kenneth Clarke, 
instructor of math-electric. Gene 
Daly, program co-ordinator, Ivan 
Murphy, program co-ordinator, 
heavy equipment diesel, Oscar

In other action at the official 
meeting, a request from Cinema 
Club for a $150 allocation to join 
the National Entertainment 
Committee v/as read. According 
to Airgood, the organization 
would provide popular movies 
and recording groups at a low cost 
to the college. The question of 

whether the money would be 
given to the club was moved to the 
Ways and Means Committee. 

Also Leo A. Murray, SGA 
senator, proposed the installment 
of a 15 mile-an-hour speed zone in 
front of the college on West Third 
Street to prevent students from 
being hit by speeding cars. 
Airgood stated the matter would 
be looked into. 

Murray also asked to see in- 
formation concerning dance 
revenue. He stated that he wanted 
to know "how much money we are 
losing at the dances." He felt that 
"SGA should pursue bigger 
problems, other than recreation." 
He suggested that the association 
"spring the officers free" of the 
problem of scheduling of dances.

City firemen reported to the 
scene of a fire at 315-317 Campbell 
Street last Monday morning. The 
building houses college students. 

Firemen arrived at the scene at 
1:05a.m. and held theblazeto 
one room and some exterior 
siding and eaves. 

Firemen had everything under 
control and no injuries were 
reported by the time the last 
company pulled out at 2:25 a.m. 

This was the third fire in recent 
weeks where housing for college 
students were involved. 

Fire company officials at- 
tributed the fire to a burning 
mattress in Room 20 occupied by 
Thomas S. Farrell, a printing 
student from Pottstown, Pa. 

The cause of the fire to the 
building, which is owned by 
Leland J. Calistri, of 855 Louisa 
Street, is still undetermined. 

Responding to the fire were 
Rescue 9, Ladder 1, Snorkle 1, and

rules the committee is to follow in 
■s_^n eight making plans for the weekend. 

Airgood stressed the fact that 
the committee has full power over 
Spring Weekend activities. Final 
decisions will be made by 
Airgood. He stated that the group 
should "investigate various 
ideas" concerning different 

No definite dates have been set 

for the weekend, which will be 

sometime in April. Airgood said 

the planning committee will

The president also advised the 
committee to use the various 
college media to "find out what 
students want." This aspect was 
brought out several times during 
the meeting. 

Jerry S. Hanford, SGA social 
chairman and business 
management student from 
Williamsport, was named head of 
the committee. 

Members include Charles B. 


Miller, a construction carpentry 
student from Lock Haven; Adria 
S. Thompson, a business 
management student from 
Williamsport; Robert A. 
Musheno, SGA vice president and 
architectural technology student 
from Williamsport. 

Also, Steven J. Ezzyk, a com- 
puter science student from 
Berwick; Mary C. Jacobson, a 
broadcasting student from 
Westfield; Susan J. Charney, an 
advertising art student from 
Howard. All are SGA senators 
except Musheno. 

It is possible more students may 
be added to the committee, 
Airgood said. 

Some ideas for the weekend that 
were discussed were a dance, a 
baseball game between faculty 
and students, a car smash and a 
concert. Several popular groups 
were mentioned for the concert. 

Hanford suggested that if a 
more popular group was what the 
student body wanted, it might be 
possible to co-sponsor the event 
with Lycoming College. 

The tentative Spring Weekend 
budget is "around $6,000," 
Airgood said. 

Three groups

on Thursday 

By Nancy Carlin 
Staff Writer

Voices of Bluegrass. He plans to 
record more this summer. 

Leon Morris has recorded three 
albums, two with bis cucceoU 
group, (he Bluegrass Associates. 

Headin' South will also be

Scruggs-style banjo players. 

Tickets can be obtained free 
with WACC ID in Rooms 309 and 
317 of the Klump Academic Cen- 
ter. General admission is $3. 

Fall enrollment

The projected enrollment for 
' next fall is expected to stay the 
same as fall 1977, according to Dr. 
William H. Feddersen, college 
president, at the Board of 
Trustees' meeting last Monday. 

Dr. Feddersen also said that the 
enrollment has increased 30 per 
cent in the last three years. 

The projection for full-time 
college students is 2,863 and 1,182 
students for the high school 
vocational-technical program.

Feddersen acknowledges 
Third Street traffic hazard 

West Third Street traffic, between Susquehanna and 
Park Streets, is a continual hazard to students, faculty 
and administration. 

The SPOTLIGHT has suggested that speed reduction 
signs be placed between the 900 and 1 100 blocks. 

Dr. William H. Feddersen, college president, has 
acknowledged the traffic problem. 

However, Dr. Feddersen said speed reduction signs 
may not be enough. He believes, in addition, the in- 
stallation of flashing lights will cause drivers to 
automatically slow down. 

Dr. Feddersen has contacted Williamsport Mayor 
Daniel P. Kirby , in order to reach a workable solution 

The SPOTLIGHT urges the proper officials to act 

This traffic hazard is unnecessary— speed reduction 
signs and flashing lights are long overdue. 

Drop-box for library books 
under construction 

A drop-box for due library books will be placed in the 
Klump Academic Center within two to three weeks according 
to David P Siemsen, director of learning resources 

The SPOTLIGHT acknowledged a need for the drop-box in 
Its Tuesday, Nov. 15, issue. It was noted that the walk from the 
Klump to the library during inclement weather may be a cause 
for overdue books. 

The box was originally to be installed during January 
However, according to Siemsen, deadlines for "other things- 
delayed construction of the box. 

Construction is currently underway, according to George 
C. Krause, division director of building technology 

According to Siemsen, if problems occur, the box will be 
removed at the semester's end. 

Space limitations cause 
Bulletin Board exclusions 

The SPOTLIGHT has a regular weekly feature call- 
ed "Bulletin Board." The purpose of this feature is to 
allow campus clubs and organizations let the campus 
community know what events are upcoming. 

Sometimes, however, we find ourselves in a situa- 
tion where we have too much for inclusion in "Bulletin 
Board." When this happens (we usually discover it 
about five minutes before the paper is put to press), we 
have no alternative but to make cuts as necessary. 

The SPOTLIGHT apologizes to any club or campus 
organization for any inconvenience they may have suf- 
fered because a news item was not published. 

Meanwhile, our goal is to inform. To do this effec- 
tively, we need club officers and the heads of the 
various organizations on campus to bring their news 
Items to us. We will do our very best to let the world 
know what's going on. 

The deadline for these items is noon on Tuesdays pre- 
ceding publication.

With one varsity sport to go, 2 out of 5 teams already champs 

By Stu Karschner 
Staff Writer 

With five of the six varsity 
sports finished with their 
schedules, WACC already owns 
two Eastern Pennsylvania 
Community College Athletic 
Conference (EPCCAC) cham- 

Coach Dave Houseknecht, in his 
first year in the position, led the 
cross country team to an im- 
pressive 6-1 record and an EPC- 
CAC championship. The Wildcats 
ended the year strong by winning 
the last five games of the season. 

Three runners— John D. 
Copenheaver, a toolmaking 
technology student from 
Thomasville; Kenneth C. Kuhns, 
an electronics technology student 
from Littlestown, and Christopher 
G. Simonetti, a carpentry building 
student from Milroy— made the 
All-Conference team and will be 
returning next year. 

Coach Houseknecht has said, 

PHEAA to recognize 
multiple tuition rates 

Pennsylvania Higher Education 
Assistance Agency , (PHEAA ) , 
will begin recognizing multiple 
tuition rates for grants beginning 
the August, 1978 semester, ac- 
cording to Dr. William H. Fed- 
dersen, college president. 

In the past, PHEAA only 
recognized the tuition for spon- 
soring districts. 

Now, PHEAA will also 
recognize the non-sponsoring 
districts' rate.

It means the adventure of seeing places like Greece,

SGA candidates 
debating today 

A debate between candidates 
running for Student Government 
Association offices will take place 
at 3 p.m. today in the Klump 
Academic Center Auditorium. 

The event is being held to allow 
the student body to become 
familiar with the candidates and 
their platforms, according to Mrs. 
Bonny M. Wheeland, SGA election 
boardl chairman. 

There are three possible ways 
the debate may be run, Mrs. 
Wheeland said. The first would be 
questions being directed to the 
candidates by the student body. 
This would occur only if enough 
students attend the debate. 

Another manner of running the 
debate would be for the can- 
didates to state their platforms 
and ask each other questions . 

Another alternative would be 
for the election board to ask 
questions of the candidates. The 
questions would concern the 
candidates' platforms and their 
ideas for the coming year, Mrs. 
Wheeland said.

tion elections for the 1978-79 
school year will be held this 
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 
at various locations on campus, 
according to Mrs. Bonny M. 
Wheeland, election board 

The board is looking for greater 
voter turnout this year, Mrs. 
Wheeland said. It is attempting to 
do this by securing longer voting 
hours and by holding a debate 
between candidates, she added. 

Mrs. Wheeland stated that if 
students "want a say in what 
happens to their activity fee 
money" they take should take the 
time to vote this week. 

Publicity for the elections was 

up to the candidates. Each can- 
didate ticket was allowed to spend 
$25 to publicize the campaigns. 

Election results will be an- 
nounced Monday, April 17, Mrs.

Urban Sociology class By voting for SGA officers, 
draws media attention students have active voice 

yisM to New York City by students enrolled in Dr. Hiehard Sahn 's Urban 
Sociology class have drawn the attention of the community and the media, tn- 
cludinf; coverage in the New York Times. Now. there has been forwarded to the 
college a copy of an editorial which appeared in the Feb. 2rt. l97Redition of The 
Miami Herald. Miami. Fla. The text of the editorwi. heatlltned "Taking a Shine 
to the Big Apple, "follows: 

It is about time somebody said something good about 
New York City, and right on time, somebody has. Seven 
college students from Williamsport, Pa., enrolled or 
embroiled in an "urban sociology" course, were hauled 
into the big city in the teacher's van for a life experience. 

Although they saw slums and bums and potholes, as 
they had been led to expect, they also failed to see 
roaming gangs of young hoodlums or packs of stray dogs. 
The absence of the latter disappointed one scholar, who 
planned to do a term paper on the urban sociological 
problem of having a pet in a city like New York. 

Except for the cultural shock of having to pay $1.20 
for a cup of hot chocolate, the students were impressed 
with the city, found it no worse than any other, and 
deduced that there is a uniqueness about the place that 
would make working there "a challenge and a pleasure." 

Certainly it is a challenge. As for a pleasure, perhaps 
you have to come there from Williamsport.

Elections for the 1978-79 Student Government 
Association officers will be Wednesday, Thursday and 

The two opposing parties will debate important 
issues in the auditorium today at 3 p.m. This debate is a 
means of communicating with the student body. 

The SPOTLIGHT urges everyone to attend. Meet the 
candidates, listen to their proposals and take a few. 
minutes to vote during elections. 

Choosing the better candidates is the only way to 
ensure a fair and active SGA. Voting is the only means of 
proclaiming that choice. 

The voting process is short and simple. Students 
must present their ID cards. Selection is made by pencil- 
ing the corresponding number on a computer card. 

Those who consider listening to the candidates and 
voting as worthless have no legitimate right to complain 
about poor campus life. 

To the Editor: 

With the end of the academic 
•year closer than some might wish, 
it is appropriate to recognize the 
efforts of this year's journalism 
students and The SPOTLIGHT 

Including this issue, these stu- 
dents have produced 22 issues of 
The SPOTLIGHT. This includes 
writing, editing, layout, paste-up, 
and circulation. 

During the past few weeks, The 
SPOTLIGHT has been missing 
from the campus scene. Judging 
from inquiries and comments 
we've received . . . Well, it's good 
to know that we've been missed ! 

The bulk of the cost of produc- 
ing The SPOTLIGHT is derived 
from the activity fee. In turn, the 
newspaper is distributed free for 
all students. 

However, it should be pointed 
out that the cost of production of 
the last three issues as well as of 
this issue and the next issue— will 
be paid for with money gained 
through advertising carried in 

To do this, the staff aborted 
planned attendance at a confer- 
ence. This speaks loudly for the 

dedication of a group of journa- 
lism students to their product and 
to their campus. 

Speaking of advertising, the 
staff this year— besides reporting 
news of campus interest— has pre- 
pared 552 inches of free, campus- 
service advertising. This is 37.5 
percent of all advertising carried 
in 21 issues. (This issue was in 
production when statistics were 

So . . . Looking at the fact that 
the staff has produced lively, in- 
formative and regular issues 
throughout the year (despite 
some severe weather) . . . And 
looking at the fact that 76 percent 
of advertising monies collected 
were directed to publication in the 
student interest . . . And looking 
at campus service through efforts 
such as free "advertising" for 
campus organizations and 
"SPOTLIGHT on the Fans" . . . 

The staff of The SPOTLIGHT is 
to be congratulated and com- 
mended. It has been a privilege to 
work with you.

Tennis team will try

By Stu Karschner 
Staff Writer 

The college's tennis team, 
trying to bounce back from last 
year's record of one win and three 
losses, was scheduled to open the 
season last Saturday against 
Delaware County Community 

A previous match, scheduled 
for last Monday, was cancelled 
because of the weather. 

Harry Specht, physical 
education instructor and tennis 
coach, said he did not know if the 
match, against the Penn State 
Capitol Campus, would be 
rescheduled or not. 

Despite the "league being 
extremely strong" and the lack of 
practice, Specht said the "players 
we do have are very enthused. '

Journalism section of college receives $1,000 gift 

A gift of $1,000 has been made to 
the journalism section of the 
Williamsport Area Community 
College by direction of an area 
free-lance writer who won a na- 
tional safety journalism awards 

William E. Hampton, of Mont- 
gomery RD 1, was a winner in the 
1977 Highway Safety Journalism 
Awards Program sponsored by 
Uniroyal Tire Company. 

His winning article is entitled 
"How to Beat the Odds When You 
Drive at Night." It was published 
in the March 1977 Popular 
Mechanics magazine. 

As a winner in the awards pro- 
gram, Hampton received a plaque 
and the opportunity to select a col- 
lege of his choice to receive the 
$1,000 gift provided by the tire 

At the community college, the 
gift has been earmarked for a 


photographic darkroom and to 
purchase major photographic 
equipment to be used by future 
journalism students. 

Authored 100 Articles 

During his free-lance writing 
career, Hampton has authored 
about 100 magazine articles and 
two books. One book— "The Com- 
plete Beginner's Guide to Motor- 
cycle Skill and Safety"— was 
published in 1973. The latest— 
"How to Double the Performance 
of Your Car"— was published in 

Besides Popular Mechanics, 
Hampton articles have appeared 
in Cycle World, Cycle Illustrated, 
Motorcyclist Magazine and 

Hampton was graduated from 
the Williamsport High School in 
1955. He and his wife, the former 
Donna Clare Schultz, of Blooms- 
burg, have three children: 
William, Sabrina, and Richelle. 

Hampton is employed as a 
salesman at Steve Young's Muncy

Hampton by the tire company, the 
purpose of the competition is sum-

attention to the importance of 
safety on the highways, to in- 
fluence the public to improve its 
driving skills and to pay closer at- 
tention to proper selection and 
maintenance of auto safety equip- 
ment . . ." 

According to a letter from W. 
Herbert Schmalz, Uniroyal presi- 
dent, the tire company has, since 
1974, recognized outstanding jour- 
nalism achievements that create 
greater public awareness of the 
need for safety on the nation's

newspapers, trade publications,

Greater communication and 
cooperation among students, 
faculty and administration is one 
of the major goals of newly

secretarial student from Sunbury,

Communication important 

Miss Jacobson and Seager 
agreed that one of the most im- 
portant points of their ad- 
ministration is "communication 
between the students themselves, 
faculty and administration and 
the community." 

The president-elect stated that 
her immediate reactions to being 
voted 1978-79 SGA president, were 
that it will be "a lot of work" and 
the officers will "need everyone to 
help " 

Some of the major changes the 
group plans to make within the 
organization for the coming 
school year include the 
establishment of an en-

responsibility it will be to plan 
social events. This will leave SGA

SPOTLIGHT expresses 
thanks to all and one 

Today's SPOTLIGHT is the twenty-third and final 
issue for the 1977-78 school year. 

The SPOTLIGHT staff thanks all students, campus 
organizations, faculty and administration for their 
cooperation and comradeship during this time. 

We also extend appreciation to our advertisers; 
recent publications were made possible through their 

In addition, a special thank you is given to 
SPOTLIGHT Advisor Tony Cillo. His support— and 
patience— went far beyond the call of duty. 

Potholes, rocks, puddles 
make parking a real task 

The largest and most used campus parking lot, on 
the corner of West Third and Susquehanna Streets, is— in 
short— a mess. 

Snow and rain storms have resulted in a 
conglomeration of potholes which are damaging to 
vehicles using the lot. 

In addition, rocks and post-rain puddles make 
walking through the lot more like tackling an obstacle 

The other faculty and student lots on West Third 
Street are paved. Why not also pave the largest lot on 
campus? Students are entitled to decent parking 

The summer season would be an excellent time to 
undertake such a project.

A friend of mine summed up the 
SGA election very nicely when he 
compared it to the kind "one 
would find in a third grade 
classroom where the kids were 
electing a hall monitor." 

Anyway, it is interesting to note 
thai Lycoming County has two 
voting machines stored over in 
the Bardo Gym— just 25 yards 
from where the so-called election 
was held. With a few phone calls 
to the right places, we might have 
had an election. 

Dances, softball, picnic 
highlight Spring Weekend 

Sunday, April 9, concluded this year's SGA Spring 
Weekend— three days of ample activity and enjoyment 
for those who participated. 

A dance in the gym on Friday, April 7, kicked off the 
weekend. Sounds were provided by two rock groups: 
Odessa and Fly By Night. 

Saturday afternoon, the faculty outdid students in a 
competitive— and somewhat amusing— softball game. 

■The evening was topped off at the American Legion 
Post 617 in South Williamsport. Freeway provided music 
for another night of dancing and socializing. 

A picnic at Little Pine State Park highlighted Sunday 
afternoon with plenty of food, drink and outdoor ac- 

The SPOTLIGHT congratulates the SGA for a 
weekend well worth the $1.50 admission. 

Thanks to Bill Hampton . . . 
photo facilities will be upgraded 

William E. Hampton, an area free-lance writer, has 
made it possible for the journalism section to begin 
planning and equipping a photography darkroom for use 
by journalism students and The SPOTLIGHT staff. 

This has been a critical need ; Mr. Hampton's gift is a 
big start toward meeting that need. 

We thank Mr. Hampton for directing the gift to us 
and we thank Uniroyal Tire Company which made the 
gift possible.

The American election process 
was set back more than 200 years 
recently when the Student 
Government Association elections 
were held in the Klump Academic 

In fact, the word "election" 
doesn't even fit the very loosely 
put together process, whicii 
ultimately determined next 
year's SGA officers. 

The Election Board, 
presumably neutral in the elec- 
tion, openly campaigned for one 
of the tickets seeking office 

In addition. Bonny Wheeland, 
election board chairman, allowed 
one girl to change her vote after it 
was already deposited in the 
ballot box. An act such as this is 
hardly a way to conduct an 

Also, the students who voted 
were forced to cast their ballot in 
the open for all eves to see. Add 
this to the fact that Mrs, 
Wheeland carried the ballot boxes 
home with her on Wednesday and 
Thursday, and the end result is 
far from an "election" in the true

riddled with problems, mostly 

The committee was formally 
organized in mid-January, 1978, 
Shortly thereafter, we identified 
the problems found within SGA 
and established a set of objectives 
based on the needs of the students. 
This problem sheet was published 
in our first campaign handout. 
Many concerned suggestions for 
the much needed improvements 
of Student Government went 
unheeded by the Executive Board 
and later the Senate. 

The actions staged by the com- 
mittee raise serious questions on 
many issues centered around and 
within SGA. 

Our first series of successes 
concerned SGA's high telephone 
expenses. By picking up on a 
small item, deliberately buried 
within a general report, we expos- 
ed the unwillingness of the Ex- 
ecutive Board to accurately por- 
tray the facts. By obtaining the 
needed information from a source 
other than SGA. we showed that 
stone walls can be out-flanked. 

The committee also took steps 
to insure that for Spring Weekend, 
excessive amounts of your money 
were not paid to an unnecessary 
promoter as it had wastefully 
been done in the past.

Graduate uses skill as key to future for self, others 

By Linda Springman 
.Staff Writer 

There are times in every 
student's life when he wonders 
what the future holds for him 
after completing his line of study. 
Will he be able to put his skills to 
work and make his mark in the 
world'? Will he be happy at it? 
Where will his new career lead 

Perhaps Andrew D Barnes, a 
1976 forest technology graduate 
thought about those same 
questions at one time or another. 
Two years later 
Little did he know that two 
years later he would not only be 
putting his skills to use for the 
betterment of others, but also be 
seeing parts of the world he never 
imagined he would see, 

Barnes, a Bradford native, soon 
will be leaving for a period of 

work in Colombia, Peru, Bolivia 
and Brazil as part of the Christian 
Service Corps. 

He will be serving with a 
missionary couple in the Sierra 
Mountains among the Kogi In- 
dians using his forestry skills to 
improve their environment. 

The Christian Service Corps, 
called the Peace Corps of the 
church, was founded in 1921. 

Room and board 

Corpsmen serve for room and 
board and a small allowance, but 
no salary. They are sponsored by 
interested individuals. 

Barnes will undergo a three 
month training period which 
consists of language preparation, 
cuhure of the host country, Bible 
and basic Christian witness, in- 
terpersonal relations and other 

He will spend two years on the 
field and three months afterward 
in a readjustment period, during 
which time he will serve on the 
staff and visit his sponsors to 
share his experiences . 

Corpsmen serve in more than 40 
countries and the United States, 
They are not affiliated with any 
one denomination. 

Received award 

While al the college, Barnes 
received the Howard award for 
having the highest average in the 
forestry program. 

As of January of this year, 
Barnes still needed $178 to reach 
his goal. 

Anyone interested in becoming 
a sponsor may contact the 
Christian S'-'-vic'e League, 1509 
16th N.W., Washington. D.C .

to function as a governing body 
and become more deeply involved 
with college affairs, according to 

Demand participation 

Also, the officers plan to 
demand greater participation 
from SGA senators. "The 
Executive Board will not do all 
the work," Seager said. 

According to Miss Jacobson, the 
voter turnout this year was more 
than double that of last year. The 
officers were pleased at this, she 
added. Seager, however, stated he 
was disappointed in the turnout 
considering the number of people 
that were reached through both 

Other specific ideas the officers 
are discussing are the erection of 
an activity bulletin board on 
campus to publicize college 
events, the examination of many 
school policies, such as a pass-fail 
system; the installation of a juke 
box in the Lair; and an in- 
vestigation into the "high cost" of 
books and supplies in the college 

The officers plan to utilize 
student services as often as 
possible in the coming year 
According to Seager, it is cheaper 
to use student assistance than to 
pay someone to do a job. It will 
also give the students a chance to 
"use their knowledge." Miss 
Jacobson said.

Programs to involve the college 
more with the community and to 
unify the campuses are also 

Miss Jacobson stressed the fact 
that the student body must work
